TASTING NOTES

Grown in the heart of the Barossa Valley, this is a concentrated yet refined wine with rich dark plums and blackberry fruits layered with spicy cedar and vanilla oak and velvety, fine tannin.

 

SEASON

After being hit by spring frost the vineyard bounced back, albeit with diminished yields. January and February were dry and warm and some hot patches in February put the brakes on ripening. Milder warm weather continued into autumn, allowing good hang time for development of complex flavours. Our Shiraz harvest took place in the first two weeks of April.

WINEMAKING 

The fruit was fermented in open and static fermenters with pumping over and hand plunging. The wine was aged in a mix of seasoned and new barrels for 15 months. We use a selection of French barrels for tasty and nuanced oak character.
