Grown on the Kidman and Wetherall vineyards of Parker Estate. It only sees French oak. Medium-bodied but well fruited and textured. Plummy aroma with bold, bright, youthful fruit flavour. Gorgeous nuances of sarsaparilla, red currants and snappy sour cherries. Plenty of body and mouth-coating tannins which linger strongly on the aftertaste.
