Winemaker's Notes
"The 2014 vintage benefitted from a cooler period in mid-February, resulting in longer ripening periods and relatively low yields providing fruit with good concentration and depth. Descendant was picked on the 13th March with lifted aromatics and a rich, pure fruit profile. Intense, dark berry fruits with an underlying perfume of violet, lavender and spice. Dense dark cherry and blueberry fruit is perfectly interwoven with nuances of cinnamon, spice and pepper. Full-bodied with great concentration, and silky tannins this suave wine has impeccable balance and a long future ahead of it. "

Technical Notes
"92% Shiraz/8% Viognier. The vineyard was planted with cuttings from one of the old Run Rig vineyards. The Shiraz is crushed on top of the Viognier from the same vineyard, which has been lightly pressed for blending with the Run Rig.The blend of fruit is then co-fermented and later the wine matured for 18 months in 2 1/2 year old French barrels that had been previously used for Run Rig. 15% alc."
