The nose opens with savoury spices into ripe berries with rich earthy notes while the complexity from oak builds to a crescendo of nutmeg, vanilla, chocolate, coconut, ripe plums, blackberries, and figs. The velvety tannins result in an immortal palate.
This wine will stand up to the test of time, open it now or be rewarded from years of careful cellaring.
Opulent and rich, but savoury and smooth; the ideal blend of cool nights and bright sunshine, finished with precision.
Fermentation over twelve days on skins expressed varietal character and extracted generous, rounded tannins. Automated cap management and temperature control produced a wine of finesse. Carefully matured over thirty months in aged American Hogsheads.
Planted in the 60s in a pristine location. The power of the morning sun is captured by the 35 rows planted in an Eastern orientated, leisurely slope. Walking the line between elegance and power, this wine has all the force you would expect from a rich Cabernet, while keeping the cool weather expression of the Adelaide Hills.
