Barossa, Australia. Clay, sand, ironstone and limestone base.
Hand picked, basket pressed and unfiltered. The grapes spend two weeks on their skins with regular hand plunging to gently extract color, flavor and tannins. Matured in a combination of new and older French and American oak for 18 months.
Color: Deep garnet.
Bouquet: Blackberry, spice, plum and licorice give way to a subtle integration of smoky, vanillin oak.
Taste: Dark cherry and bramble fruit with chocolate nuances and savory notes of leather and spice. Oak
integrates with the supple fruit, excellent tannin structure and balanced acidity.
Excellent with roast meats and tomato-based pasta.
