A bitterweet melody composed for the night. Nocturne combines mature wines from Central Victoria with Antipodean botanicals plucked from sleeping Eucalypt forests to create this premium Amer.
Wormwood plays a key role, supported by nine native botanicals with a strong focus on Australian bush fruits including muntries, riberries, desert limes & quangdongs. Four other bittering botanicals are blended in with the final botanical; Yarra Valley black truffles from the 2015 season.
Ten year old flor rose made from syrah & matured on vermouth lees in old French oak barrels.
The base wine and botanicals are blended for a six month maturation in old French oak. Sweetened with grape concentrate & bottled without filtration. Nothing else added.
