The grapes for this wine have come exclusively from the half acre home site in Charteris Bay and have been nurtured with meticulous attention to quality and yield.
Deep Burgundy in colour. Ripe red fruit with mint and herbs on the nose, and some spice and star anise. Exhibits fresh acidity with a juicy palette in a lingering mineral structure creating a beautifully integrated finish.
