100% Shiraz from vineyards located at the southern end of McLaren Vale, close to the seaside town of Aldinga.
Fruit was crushed immediately. The skin and juice mix was allowed to warm naturally over several days after which it began fermentation at cool temperatures. Then carefully pressed and separated from the skins. Run down to 10% new, 90% second or third use oak barrels for 18 months for maturation, before blending and bottling.
A lifted nose with dark fruit flavours of blackberry, mint chocolate and anise. Dustings of white pepper spice, vanilla, and black olive tapenade provide an intriguing savoury counterpoint to the more primary fruit characters. The palate is concentrated with a luscious rolling texture and packed with fresh blackberry, dark chocolate and liquorice flavours. Juicy and plush with silky tannins providing a drying, savoury finish.
