Medium red with a nice depth of colour.
Ripe and mature nose reflecting the excellent growing conditions during the season. Anise, vanillin and dark berry fruit.
Layers of fruit, tannin and oak. Raspberry and blackberry balance toasty oak and spice. A ripe tannin profile across the palate will reward further aging.
Roast beef with all the trimmings, roasted eggplant with feta and tomato or a selection of flavoursome cheese.
Fruit selected from premium McLaren Vale vineyards was cold soaked for two days, followed by inoculation with yeast at a low rate to ensure an even fermentation. The juice was cool fermented on skins for eight days then pressed into stainless steel. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was then racked into a mixture of large and small format fine grained barrels for the remainder of maturation.
