2014 didn't make the Yarra Valley's Top 5. Wet weather leads to poor flowering leads to smaller cropping levels... You know the drill. What was salvaged to get this in the bottle is deserves an approving nod.
Light on, red berries, compote, with an earthy undertow sums this up best. Fruit driven, only 10% new oak used. Engaging depth and some bitey peppery spice. Crunchy type acidity sits high up on the palate but settles with time. It's more softly softly on day two.
Something you could snuggle up to on a cool autumn evening.
