52/24/24% cabernet sauvignon/merlot/cabernet franc, each fermented separately. Matured for 20 months in new French barriques before blending; 420 dozen made. Poor flowering and fruit set in 2020 resulted in a Whalebone Vineyard crop of just 1t/ha. It was decided to blend all three varieties and release it as a young wine. Displays all the immediate fresh and juicy appeal that comes with Wrattonbully fruit, with a solid core of ripe blackberry, dark spices, anise, a touch of Aussie bush/eucalypt and well-integrated vanilla-pod flashes of oak. Well trimmed on the palate in beautifully crafted tannins.
