Taste Description

Colour
Opaque black core, dark red rim.

Nose
An aromatic assault / surge / eruption of soy, hoisin, balsamic reduction… coiled around a core of kirsch and fresh raspberry.
This propulsion is crammed with tell-tale barrel ferment, V.A. and formic Grange markers – all in balance, all respectful of fruit and oak.
And yet, so ‘classy’ – a brightness, a sheen, a gloss, a raciness – belying both age and upbringing (élevage).

Palate
Formidable
No gaps, a densely-packed structural continuum.
Not huge, not massive, yet taut, muscular, feisty. A black palimpsest - black fruits, black liquorice,  black pudding, black fig, black cardamom....
Granitic chewy tannins linger and coat; oak all but fully concealed, submerged beneath a tannin/oak/acid/flavour tsunami.
Fruits? Where to start in this entanglement? Time please.

技術情報

Origin: Multi-regional blend, South Australia. From Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra and Magill Estate.

Maturation:20 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads.

Variety: 96% Shiraz and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Vintage Conditions

The majority of South Australia had a dry winter reminiscent of 2006, vines were in water deficit at the beginning of spring and became accustomed to dry conditions quite early. The exception was McLaren Vale, where revitalising winter rainfall exceeded the long term average. Early budburst was noticeable across many regions.

Dry and warm spring conditions explained canopy growth and yields, becoming typical of the 2013 growing season. Warm days were dispersed throughout October, November and in early January, contributing to an early start to the 2013 harvest and a condensed vintage. 

Dry and warm conditions, coupled with lower than average yields resulted in fruit showing strong, structural tannins and wines of great intensity and encouraging flavour. The Magill Estate fruit was harvested in pristine condition, hand-picked on February 14th and 15th 2013.
