From Gippsland, from syrah and cabernet grapes. From two vineyards, one for each variety. Fermented separately, pressed quite hard and into old oak and then blended together and rested a spell. Looking for colour, texture and freshness in this wine. Decidedly considered in the approach, is the gist you get while talking to winemakers Justin and Lisa Jenkins.

Vibrant yet pale garnet colour. Electric. Fragrant wine of strawberry and pomegranate fruit scents, faint nougat, something floral, rose petals or some such. Juicy in the palate, crisp in both cranberry acidity and fine, chalky tannin feel. Dry and savoury is the vibe, with lean but refreshing red berry fruit flavours. Touches of spice and ‘mineral’ character too. It’s very well formed, fine, delicious. MIKE BENNIE, The Wine Front 2018
