Our DEBUT series of ready to drink wines are designed to present the optimal fruit characters from each variety of grape, grown in its most suitable vineyards in cool climate Western Australia. This blend of traditional Bordeaux grape varieties from vineyards in the cool south west of Western Australia, produces a wine with blackcurrant, plum and fresh mulberry characters, a full mid palate and a soft fine tannin finish. Complexity is derived from some fermentation and development in French and American oak, giving this wine a delicious mouthful of sweet fruit with notes of chocolate, cedar and plums.
