Winemaker's Notes
"Deep rich red in colour, the nose is intense with aromas of cassis, blueberry, mint and seaweed, combined with fine mocha-coffee French oak. The palate is structured and lean with ripe cassis fruit and a fine-tannin finish. 14.5% alc."

Technical Notes
"Vintage 2010 was cool and even, producing wines with beautiful focused fruit. Blended from Walker, Quarry and Avery vineyards, wine spent 19 months in tight-grain French oak from St Martin, Saury, Taransaud and Sylvain cooperages, before bottling in December 2011, under Procork. "
James Halliday
"95 pts ... A heavily stained ProCork is a worry. The strong purple-crimson colour signals no problems yet, the rich bouquet and medium- to full-bodied palate bursting with intense, perfectly ripened blackcurrant fruit; despite 19 months in quality French oak, it is this fruit, and the well-weighted tannins, which are the primary drivers. Drink through 2025."

90 JH Oh my. This wine is so yummy. Full-bodied and rich without being heavy or obvious, dark cherry and chocolate with just a touch of oak and tannin, so well-balanced, so many layers, and such an amazing value especially as it is delicious now and clearly will age equally wonderfully.
