On the nose, expect vibrant red fruits, cocoa powder, and dried spice. On the palate, the nose carries through and is supple, long, and fruit focused with a finely grained tannin structure; red berry flavours with a hint of toasty oak. Pair this with a variety of game birds like quail, a decadent charcuterie spread, or various pork dishes.
Sourced from two different vineyards (Johnson Vineyard, Waihopai Valley and Outpost Vineyard, Omaka Valley, the grapes from Johnson Vineyard via the top terrases with clay/silt loam lenses over free draining alluvium.
