The wine was aged for 12 months in French oak barriques, 47 % new and the balance one year and older.

A lovely deep garnet colour with rich aromas of spiced blackcurrant, plums and sappy green wood. A full bodied wine with tart blackcurrant rounded out with beef broth, aniseed, bay leaf and thyme and a smooth but savoury finish.
