A rich McLaren Vale cépage, two thirds Grenache, a fifth of Shiraz, the balance in Touriga and Mataro. All parcels are hand harvested, crushed and traditionally vinified in small open top vessels to optimise flavour, colour and tannin extraction. Temperatures are kept between 15°C and 35° over the course of a fortnight, as fermenting caps are treated to a course of hand plunging and pumpovers. Upon completion of ferments and malolactic, batches are transferred to a selection of well seasoned 500L French oak puncheons for several months of age.
Dark ruby colour. Lifted fruit notes of cranberry and cherries, interwoven with lovely dried spice, cumin, lavender and graphite. A highly flavoursome, medium bodied wine, its silky palate of ripe berry, dark olive and sweet fruit flavours is supported by a fine length of integrated tannins, culminating on a balanced, lingering finish. A splendid synergy with good food.
