Notes about product

Plentiful winter rains gave the vines a healthy start to the 2018 growing season. Several heat spikes in late January and early February (it’s not a South Australian summer if you don’t have a couple!) interrupted veraison. Despite a later than anticipated start and an earlier than usual finish, the compressed harvest produced wines of deep colour, flavour and balance across the board.

Winemaking notes

Aged 12 months in seasoned oak.

Tasting notes

Ripe red fruits and black cherry on the nose with mocha, subtle savoury and herbal notes adding complexity. Bright and juicy fruits coat the palate and are balanced by pepper and sweet spices. Medium-bodied in structure with great complexity and lovely silky tannins which flow through the fruity, peppery and spicy finish.

Very well put together. Concentration of peachy fruit characters on the palate help to carry the length, and the balanced acidity provides a refreshing, herbaceous finish.

Aromas of poached pears, peaches and melon lead to a palate with a fresh, pear and apple core, as well as some gently crispy, chalky texture. A blend of 47% viognier, 29% marsanne, 12% roussanne and 12% clairette.
