Andrew Nugent grew up next door to the historic Penfold wineworks at Magill, his formative wine years were spent amongst the vines. He established his own vineyard and olive grove on a hundred acres of land along Bird in Hand Road at Woodside. His efforts have since claimed a staggering list of awards for excellence on the international wine show circuit. Hand crafted from the finest parcels of Adelaide Hills Shiraz, grapes are crushed into small open fermenters and pumped over twice daily throughout vinification over the course of a week, to maximise flavour and tannin extractions. Batches are pressed off skins into a selection of French oak barriques for sixteen months maturation.
Dark red colour with bright purple hue. This elegant wine exudes rich and vibrant aromas of complex dark berries, plums and white pepper. A long and even palate carrying a generous weight of blackberry and spiced plum fruit flavours over a structure of supple integration, firm tannins and superb, textural mouthfeel. Unashamedly crafted for the discerning wine enthusiast.
