Origin: Yarra Valley
Style: Medium-bodied, red wine aged in large oak barrels
True Syrah territory, going on fresher berry fruit, black pepper, game meat and mixed herbs. Good start. Fleshy texture ripples with ripe fruit, exotic spice, pepper, a bit of roast capsicum, finishes meaty and a bit like red vermouth. Nicely done. Fuller flavoured style feeling pure and generous and easy.
