From 41yr old North facing vines in Warragul. Planted on red volcanic soil. Whole bunches sealed in a tank for a week untouched and then gently foot plunged daily for another week. Pressed into old French puncheons for the year. So pretty and elegant yet with an almost ferrous core. Dr. Pepper, terracotta and smoke. Powerful tannin to boot. Drink now, but decant.
