Current vintage

2011

Our new release Circle wine has a juicy palate of strawberries, raspberry and confectionary redskin, beautifully finished by textural, slightly dusty tannins that have great structure and length.

Appearance

Deep Cherry red.

Bouquet

Strawberry, rhubarb, cinnamon stick, tobacco leaf, dark chocolate and a whiff of musk.

Palate

A juicy palate of strawberries, raspberry, confectionary redskin, beautifully finished by textural, slighty dusty tannins that have great structure and length. A wine well suited to accompany fine food.

Winemaking

Grenache & Mourvedre harvested unusually late in mid April and fermented on skins for 8 days before being pressed to 1 to 5 -year-old predominately French puncheons. A slow gentle maturation in large format oak has enhanced the wine’s mouthfeel and texture without swamping the wine with oak characters. The composition of the wine is Mourvedre 60% and Grenache 40%.

Technical analysis

  • Alcohol 14.5%

Ageing potential

This vibrant, stylish and textural wine has immediate appeal and is an easy match with food, the crisp acid and firm textural tannin will soften and integrate over the next 3 - 5 years in bottle.
