Appearance: Inky deep ruby with a slight purple hue and confident dark rim. Usually used in blends to add colour and complexity, it is easy to see why this wine’s rich and inviting colour alone can convince even the most sceptical of critics.

Nose: Sweet and sour plum puree and dark berry aromas, such as black cherry and blue berries are complimented seamlessly by hints of French oak and white pepper. A lingering smell of blackberry and liquorice lasts well into each sip.

Palate: This wine is graciously full bodied with bold, yet smooth tannin that carries the flavours of mixed dark berries through to the long and spicy aftertaste. A hint of cigar box and cloves add to the endless depth and complexity of this abundant wine.

Aging potential: Although this wine can be enjoyed with a substantial beef fillet and pepper sauce right now, it will only improve over time and will benefit from aging 10 to 18 years.

VITICULTURAL ANALYSIS

A black grape variety originally planted is the Rhône Valley in France and is also known as Durif. The cultivar is known to produce intensely coloured and highly tannic wines and thus is usually used in blends to bulk up a wine’s colour or phenolics.

On Mischa we produce a deeply coloured Petite Sirah which also expresses beautiful, fruity flavours. This is why it be bottled as a single cultivar wine, simply because it is too good not to.
