All components are hand picked, small vessel fermented, hand plunged and go through the traditional basket press. Experienced winemaker Kym Rayner has selected barrels from 5 different sites within Waipara to craft a wine that reflects the subtle nuances that different sites contribute to the overall wine impression. The assemblage is a complex wine, already showing a classical style of velvet glove with iron fist, elegant, yet full bodied. The other key component to this wine is an expression of the different vineyard sites. Each site imparts their own distinctive character. Some components give body and extract coming from heavier clay loam soils. The others give lifted fruit and elegance to the palate, coming from lighter free draining soil.

The wine has lifted cherry and berry fruit with a rich full middle palate showing hints of black forest cake and dark chocolate finishing firm with a lingering aftertaste.

A stylish wine that will evolve and become more complex with further cellaring of 5 plus years.
