Batches are pressed into a selection of seasoned French oak hogsheads and puncheons for completion of malolactic and a series of rackings over twenty two months before assemblage.
Deep purple colour. Blackberries and cassis, beetroot and mint with a touch of cedar on the bouquet. Full bodied palate exhibiting plum and back fruits, classic Barossa varietal characters of cassis, black olives and mint.
