Taste Description

Colour
Good depth of a deep redness. Bright.

Nose
Alluring fruits - vibrant dark black cherry meshed with crushed fresh dark plum. All laced with warm spices - cinnamon & nutmeg. Beneath, scents of just-roasted lamb and rosemary. Aromatically, certainly a wine fighting above its weight! Let’s see if the palate delivers to this expectation …

Palate
This vintage overtly leads with varietal shiraz … the cabernet weaving all together, covertly propping up its structural underpinning and grip.
Contented varietal notes enhanced by an earthy vegetable and tobacco leaf imprint. Medium-bodied - structurally defined, with supportive tannins (rounded, polished) and well-disguised oak.
Yes, signs off on the earlier aromatic promise.

Vintage Conditions

Plentiful winter rainfall offered the grapevines across South Australia healthy soil moisture profiles in the lead up to the growing season. Spring was quite cool, conditions that initially slowed down vine growth. Temperatures gradually warmed in October with vines producing large canopies, little by way of irrigation was required.

Growers had to work hard to control vigour and crop size. Vintage was delayed by up to a month in some regions. Weather conditions during harvest were generally dry favouring fully ripened grapes with well-developed colours and flavours.
