  • Tasting Notes

    Colour
    Deep, dark red with a black core. Tending a purple hue towards the meniscus.

    Aroma
    Deep set aromas of red currant to blackberry with notes of incense, Christmas spice, and warm lavender oil.

    Palate
    This bold Shiraz hits the palate with power and presence. Lashings of dark fruit with notes of incense and aromatic spices, floral hints add layers and complexity. The wine rolls across the palate coating every corner of your mouth. Dense and chewy tannins compliment the fruit nicely, which tighten through the finish adding a savoury graphite note. Incredibly long and complex through the finish, this is quintessential Barossa Valley.

  • Wine Making

    De-stemmed, crushed and fermented in three to ten tonne open top fermenters, with regular pump overs (three daily over peak fermentation) to extract colour, flavour and tannins. Some parcels had 20% whole bunch ferment and punchdowns. Average time ‘on skins’ was 14 days before the dry free run was drained to tank and the pressings combined. After 24 hours the wine was then racked to barrel, where malolactic fermentation took place. The bottled wine is unfined and unfiltered

    Maturation
    Aged for 18 months in French oak hogsheads and puncheons, with 17% new and the remainder in older oak.

    Cellar Potential
    10 to 15 years

  • Product Reviews
    93 Points - MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator, May 2017
    Dark and dense, with blackberry- and licorice-scented plum flavors, accented by details of espresso, cacao, sage and clay. A distinctive juicy thread runs through the core. Firm finish. Drink now through 2030
