Delicious and approachable, the large format oak barrels order a subtle layer of toasty oak tannins that ensure the bright Morello cherries and hint of caramel are the stars of this show.

Colour

Bright light to medium red with hint of purple hue.

Aroma

Ripe cherry and blackberry, spicy oak underlying with notes of char and star anise.

Palate

Delicious approachable palate, medium weight, large oak format has enabled excellent integration of oak tannins and flavour. Notes of toast, Morello cherry and caramel.

Very flexible wine suited across a range of cuisines. Highly recommended with cheese platters, medium intensity meat dishes or Indian vegetarian curries.

Winemaker Notes

Fruit selected from premium Barossa vineyards was cold soaked for two days followed by a moderate fermentation temperature on skins for a period of six days, before being pressed into stainless steel. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and maturation in large format oak with 50% new French oak to add length however to still allow the fruit to shine through.
