Providence 2015

2015 The Rhone-style blend of Shiraz, Cinsault and Carignan is a sophisticated expression of our terroir and natural wine making in Wellington. It is a wine of brooding black fruit and minerality with light spicy overtones. Brilliant, bright and fresh in colour, the subtle hints of cloves, nutmeg and cedar compliment the rich blackberry and black cherry fruit flavours. With soft silky tannins the wine drinks superbly but also has capacity to bottle age well.
