Fruit was sourced from select vineyards in the McLaren Vale region of South Australia from another incredible vintage. The different sites allowed us to pick the fruit over a 4-week period allowing each vineyard to develop differing characters to compliment each other and also allowed us at the winery to treat the parcels individually in small ferments with longer than usual skin contact, which is always ideal. The result is an outstanding wine with obvious time and care taken with it throughout the vinification process. This wine was fermented warm and received pump overs on a daily basis during fermentation. Aged in older second and third use oak to add another level of complexity without over powering the fruit.

Exhibits dark fruit aromas of blackberry and plum with a hint of molasses and spice. Luscious style with freshly cut fruit flavours of blood plum, blackcurrant and cherry. Complexity is derived from well-integrated oak which provides a spicy kick whilst the fruit/acid/tannin balance is impeccable ensuring a smooth ride from start to finish.
