VINEYARD: Tibooburra Vineyard, Yellingbo (Upper Yarra Valley), Victoria
WINEMAKING: Crafted from a single parcel of premium MV6 clone fruit grown at the acclaimed Tibooburra vineyard in Yellingbo. The fruit was hand-picked in late March and fermented wild with 20% whole-bunches. The wine was on skins for 14 days before being pressed to French oak puncheons (25% new) where it saw 8 months élevage prior to bottling.
TASTING NOTES: Pale ruby in colour, this wine delivers aromas of macerated berries, red cherry and granite with nuances of brown spice and marzipan. Medium bodied and delicately poised with soft, silky tannins and assertive, yet beautifully integrated acidity. All elements are in perfect harmony, including the sweet red fruits.

'Spicy, minty, strawberry and autumnal. It’s fresh, crisp and kind of sappy, but in a good way. A bit of tang, some orange zest flavour too, a cool feathering of emery tannin, and a juicy red fruited finish of fine length. Really nice wine. Should age well.'
