The bouquet is generously rich with an abundance of bright blue fruits and layered with spices. The palate is firm and sumptuous with more dark berry flavours and firm, enveloping tannins that provide layers of interest, concentration and great length. The decision to use only French oak has been made to allow the wine to build depth, palate weight and layers of spice driven characters and the low percentage of new oak is to ensure the finished wine is not overrun with overt oak characters from the new barrels.
