An elegant style that is typical of the Clare Valley region, characterised by bright lively aromas, subtle fruit flavours and fine grained tannins.
Assertive aromas, bursting with blackberry, bramble and white pepper. Glossy dark cherry, mulberry fruit with fresh acidity and fine tannins. A classy wine that brings to the fore the best attributes of McLaren Vale Shiraz.

Colour Deep red and crimson
AromaText book Langhorne Creek aromas with spice and purple to red fruits such as blueberry and mulberry. The subtle characters of eucalpyt, earth, cedar and chocolate finish it off.
PalateThe juicy entry of plums and spice roll through the palate with the tight acid, firm but fine talc like tannins and the finish is balanced with subtle chocolate notes.
Crushed into and fermented in 5 and 10 tonne open top fermenters with regular pump overs 3 times daily during peak fermentation to extract colour and tannin. Following 12 days of maceration the dry free run was drained to tank. The skins were then pressed and the pressings combined with the free run. The wine was then racked to barrel. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel. Minimal fining and filtration.
