A deeply coloured wine with a nose of complexity and range. Leading aromas and flavours of pink peppercorn, celery seed, and raspberry cream lead to plum, iron, and delicate floral notes. The palate starts fruit forward with subtle spice woven in which carries through along smooth and mild tannins to a finish that is delicate and refined.

Growing Conditions

2015 was a solid vintage following brutally cold temperatures and snowfall in February which caused some damage and reduced overall yields. Variable temperatures in the spring and a damp June were fortunately tempered by a hot and dry July and August. These ideal growing conditions persevered through a warm and lengthy autumn during the final stages of maturation. The vintage shows whites of complexity and freshness while the reds, as a result of lower yields and extended ripening, are layered, elegant and plush.
