Tasting Notes

Lifted aromas of blackberry, black cherry and raspberry are accompanied by spicy, dark berry fruits and white pepper on the palate. The finish is long with fine-grained tannins from fourteen months’ maturation in a combination of new and seasoned American and French oak barrels. Although drinking well now this wine will benefit from medium-term cellaring.

Winemaking

The grapes were destemmed but not crushed and spent ten days on their skins in open fermenters to gently extract colour, flavour and tannin. Each parcel is fermented separately and gently basket pressed prior to 16 months maturation in a combination of new and seasoned American and French oak barrels.

The grapes  were  sourced from a tapestry of Barossa Sub regions Regions

- Grenache from Vineyards in Seppeltsfield sub-region.

- Shiraz from our vineyard 'Matthews Road', in the Eden Valley, as well as form vineyards in Vine Vale, Krondorf and Bethany.

- Mourvèdre From Block 9 of our Vine Vale Vineyard.
