Winemaker's Tasting Notes
A blend from all of our vineyard sites, Leah is named after Michael Seresin’s daughter. The fruit is handpicked and completely destemmed before being fermented with wild yeast. A long post-ferment maceration period gives this wine its savoury elegance and structure. Exhibits bright, fragrant berry-fruit aromas, interlaced with spice and herbal notes. The wine is focused and concentrated, with a succulent fruit core, framed by fine-grained tannins and a mouth-watering acidity. An elegant and understated style with immediate appeal, but structure to last.
