Named after the picker's hut at the front of the property, the Hut Block vineyards are planted on sand and black clay loam soils over a substructure of clay. The intensity in the fruit can be attributed to these soils, while the mild maritime climate of McLaren Vale, in which cool evening and night breezes from the gully winds moderate the day time temperatures, suits this variety. The emphasis is on low yielding vines that are pruned and trained to allow dappled light to reach the fruit zone to slow ripening and enhance aroma and flavour. Grapes are harvested throughout the cool of night, vinified and matured fourteen months in a combination of new and seasoned French and American oak barrels.
Deep, full vibrant red colour. Ripe fragrant cassis and peppermint nose with attractive scented vanilla and coffee overtones arising from integrated oak. Long bright elegantly structured palate showing persistent varietal fruit and fine grained tannins. The wine has great fruit sweetness.
