2018 RP2 (6 x 750ml Case)
The 2018 RP2 (red blend) is a wine of elegance, with beautiful mid palate fruit sweetness combined with savoury attributes and fine grain tannin. This year's blend includes all four red varieties from our Marli Russell plantings being Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvedre and Cinsault. It was always the intent for this blend to be Grenache dominant (at least 50%) and now having worked with these varieties in the vineyard for 10 years we are convinced more than ever that this is such an important aspect. We truly love the way Grenache grows on our site and it is this variety we hope dictates the wine’s style. It is matured in larger format oak barrels to preserve freshness, fruit vibrancy and energy.

|2018 RP2 Tasting Note
55% Grenache, 20% Shiraz, 20% Mourvedre, 5% Cinsault
This wine has a striking bright, vibrant hue when first poured into the glass. The nose is bursting with small red berry aromas and spice. It quickly draws you back in for another look as it slowly reveals it’s many layers of complexity. On the palate there are raspberries, strawberries, cherries and spice. The palate is medium bodied, elegant and refined but with great concentration and length of flavour. Whilst not necessarily needing time to age, we suspect it will flesh out even further over the coming years.
