Selective hand pruning yields a harvest of small, concentrated berries full of colour and flavour. The precious parcels of distinguished, sixty to eighty years old McLaren Vale vines are treated to an old fashioned maceration and vinification in traditional open fermenters, followed by a press and fill to a selection of seasoned French and American oak puncheons, purposely chosen for the task on the basis of spicey oaken characters and sweet tannin profiles.
Bright cherry red. Perfumed confectionary lift of raspberry and cerise, mulberries and hints of musk, ginger nut biscuits, cinnamon, nutmegs and clove.
