Winemaker's Notes

We source the grapes for this particular blend from different locations across the Barossa, each individual parcel of fruit adds its own characters to the finished wine. Grenache for its perfume and spice, Shiraz for power and bass notes and Mataro for its savoury structure and texture, together they seem to seamlessly mesh together as a complete blend. Perfect with light meat dishes or indeed by itself.

Appearance: Opaque, deep red/purple.

Nose: Rich and comforting aromas of red and dark berry fruit. Red cherry, dark plum and blackberry with higher tones of cranberry. There are hints of Asian spice, gingerbread, dark soy sauce, licorice and chocolate along with notes of violets, dried orange peel and gentle, seasoned oak aromas further in the background.

Palate: Medium-bodied in the mouth with delicious crunchy redcurrant and red cherry characters along with deeper flavours of blackberry and black plum. Great clarity of flavour with hints of ginger-cake, five spice, red licorice, mocha and subdued oak. Plenty of drive and energy across the palate with a bright line of acidity, excellent balance and a finish that lingers nicely with silky, ripe, fine-grained tannins adding structure. Delicious drinking now and be confident cellaring the wine over the medium-term.
