Notes about product

The Barossa experienced a wetter and cooler than average winter and spring with good soil moisture levels. The Spring saw perfect grape ripening weather with balanced sugars, colours and natural acidity. These conditions resulted in a later harvest, which allowed grapes to ripen more slowly and evenly with a gradual accumulation of sugars and flavours, The yields were around 20 - 30% higher than the five-year average.

Winemaking notes

Aged 24 months in 10% new American oak and 90% seasoned French and American Oak.

Tasting notes

Rich, sweet and spicy fruit in balance with soft, velvety tannins. A complex, medium-bodied wine showing hints of mocha, chocolate mint and vanilla, which flow through to the lengthy, fruity, peppery and spicy finish.

Press reviews

James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)

- 90 points -

August 2020

Produced from 10 rows of vines planted pre-1860 that were about to be bulldozed, but saved and replanted at Langmeil, matured for 23 months in French hogsheads (40% new). Curiously 83% Barossa Valley, 17% Eden Valley. It's full-bodied, and the fruit flavours are slightly blurred by the alcohol.
