From a choice site in Adelaide Hills near Echunga, off vines planted to well drained, granitic soils, 410 metres above sea level. Fruit is completely hand harvested and placed into small, traditional open top fermenters. A component of whole bunches is introduced, vintage permitting, to initiate partial carbonic maceration, extract fine stem tannins and enhance complexity. Temperatures are kept between a wide range of 15°C and 34°C throughout a fortnight of vinification, while treating the ferments to cap management regimens of hand plunging and pumpovers. The finished wine is treated to a extended term in a selection of seasoned and new, large format French barrels and smaller oak puncheons.
Deep purple red colour. Highly perfumed, vibrant and complex, floral notes of violet and dried herb, red currants and hints of black liquorice. Juicy black fruits with a measure of peppery spice over gently integrated dry, earthy tannins.
