Vibrant purple red plum colour. The nose shows an abundance of juicy cassis and blackberry fruit with an undercurrent of cedar spice. Not a wine for the faint hearted, the palate shows incredible concentration with luscious mouth-coating tannins. Although a powerhouse, everything is in check with an excellent balance of fruit concentration, tannin and acid. Flavours of dark chocolate, plum, and black cherry are beautifully integrated with cedary oak. The palate is like the perfect wave, building in intensity towards an impressive long finish with great persistency.
The 2002 season was characterised by a cold, wet winter and spring, which produced lower yields with good, thick-skinned berries. The cool and dry summer ripened fruit gradually and a warm, dry autumn allowed the grapes to ripen fully, producing some of the best and most exotic characters seen for many years.
A seductive bouquet, showing fresh brambly fruit with a menthol lift. Big, very-fine, dusty tannins need time to integrate but the deep, pure, fruit has enough power to kick through. Liquorice, chocolate and black plum flavours finish with terrific length and persistence. A muscular-weight wine its tight and demands time.
The black/purple tinted colour of this wine is followed by a pure liquorice and wild berry fruit nose. The palate is very firm in structure with fine powdery tannins, warm, rounded mouth-feel and long, dry finish.
With the Shiraz component being dominant, ultra-ripe blackberry, prune and chocolate flavours finish with reasonable persistence.
Muscular-weight, it is supple and harmonious so there is no surprise that it is approachable now.
The fruit is hand-picked at optimum ripeness-flavour, gently crushed, open-fermented and matured in a combination of French Oak and American Oak.
