Lakey Farm Heathcote Carmenere 2017
"A highly perfumed red of green herb-dashed plummy fruit with violets and cherry jam. The texture is supple, flavours tend to mulberry, mocha and tart cherry with licks of anise. It’s fleshy but medium weight, juicy and very pleasurable." —Mike Bennie for Gourmet Traveller Wine
Barrel aged, basket pressed, natural ferment.
Carmenere of the Bordeaux varieties that went missing to turn up in Chile. Grown by Humis vineyards in Heathcote.
This wine's label features a Jewel Spider. Christmas spider or Jewel Spider feeds on small insects and mosquitoes that fly into its web. They are active in the later months of the year, hence their Christmas spider name. Our native pastures, wooded windbreaks and grassed vineyard provide habitat to continue to sustain their life-cycles.
