More info

Youthful, dark red with perfumed blackcurrants, violets, lead pencil shavings and graphite on the nose. An elegant, slight mineral character is also present.

The wine shows great elegance and softness with fine velvety tannins. Decanting recommended.

This vineyard is planted in deep, well drained Glenrosa family-type soil, with some clay present. Planted in a North-West row direction, ideal for the warm Wellington area. This young vineyard planted only in 2005 shows great promise with lots of character evident very early. One of the last cultivars to ripen on Doolhof.

Enjoy with tuna & fresh lemon, smoked salmon and a fresh garden salad or light delicate red meat.
