Deep purple in colour, with pronounced rose and violet aromas. Ripe red cherry and raspberry flavours on the palate, with hints of cloves and subtle tannins which add structure and complexity.
The 2017 vintage will be regarded as a great Hunter Valley vintage, with ideal warm growing conditions leading up to vintage. After some spring and early summer rains, the vines were healthy and had plenty of foliage. Very dry and hot summer conditions with temperatures over 40 degrees meant the tannin and flavour profile of the fruit was allowed to fully mature. The 2017 red wines will be full of flavour and highly sought after.
Enjoy now or cellar for 6-8 years.
