Platter * * * 1/2
In the vintage of 2011, the berry size was smaller than in previous years.  Good news indeed as this means more colour and more flavour.  The grapes are picked and sorted by hand before a soft crush and then into stainless steel tanks to allow the natural vineyard yeasts to do their job.  Juice was pumped over the grapes three times a day allowing for maximum extraction and the followed by skin contact for over 2 weeks.  The result, as in all of Luke’s wines, a deep almost inky red black in the glass with some ruby flashing around the edges of the glass.  Whiffs of dark berries and plums with a minty undertow.  The inner core is all fruit, intense fruit concentrated, rich and generous.  Gentle tannins and a long gently waning after taste completes the elegant picture.

Enjoy with Beef, Lamb, Venison and Cured Meats.
