Located in the northern part of Margaret River, where ocean breezes create a unique climate, Amberley produces wines with elegant flavours, structure and balance.
Dark crimson red with a scarlet hue, aromas of blackcurrant and mulberry spice are complemented by hints of classic Margaret River dried herbs and bay leaf. A rich, supple red wine displaying flavours of cassis and mulberry fruit with an underlying sweet oak spice. The palate is beautifully rounded with fine, powdery tannins. Enjoy with braised rabbit served with new baby potatoes.
Fruit was sourced from vines up to 25 years old before being de-stemmed to open fermenters. The wine parcels were fermented between 26 - 30 degrees celcius and careful plunging ensured gentle extraction of colour, flavour and tannins. The fermenters were pressed out at approximately 1 Baume and allowed to ferment to dryness before racking to oak for Malolactic Fermentation. The individual parcels were matured in 100% French oak barriques for 15 months, before being racked, blended, lighly fined and bottled.
