Winemaker Tim Burvill worked at Wynns and Penfolds, where he refined his style alongside some of the best winemakers in the nation's history. Establishing his own label, he embarked upon a secret project to acquire parcels of prodigal Barossa vine.

Grapes are hand picked and lightly crushed, destemmed and vinified in a mix of closed and open top fermenters for up to ten days while being treated to frequent pumpovers. Upon completion of malolactic and lees settling, the wine is transferred into a selection of new and seasoned oak barriques and larger format 1500L oak casks for a year, followed by a racking into seasoned barriques for a further ten months.
Deeply coloured, dark purple red. Lots of bright fruit, complex, a tighter, more savoury wine, earthy aromas and cedar are punctuated by raspberry notes. The palate is structured and linear, offering good weight of fruit, ripe red berry flavours and tobacco characters. A Yarra Valley of richness and length, firm tannins but very much in balance.
