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 pick of the bunch from our McLaren Vale vineyards.
Distinctive dark purple-black colour. Cascading blue fruits on the nose with hints of dark chocolate and subtle oak. A rich voluptuous palate with concentrated plum and dark berry fruit, supple fine tannins flow through to a long and persistant finish.
The melding of the three traditional Barossa varieties creates a tremendously complex and rewarding wine.
The Grenache and Mataro are from old bush vines that are pruned in the traditional ‘goblet’ style to a limited number of buds, reducing yields and promoting flavour and colour concentration. Only the free run component of the Shiraz is used in the blend to allow the Grenache identity to shine through.
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.
