Winemaker's Notes

Deep coloured tints and medium to deep density. Excellent lifted aromas of dark chocolate, mocha and vanillin. Typical McLaren Vale. Soft palate flavours, with the chocolate evident but also plums and dried fruit. The oak at a subtle level, and we have maintained our use of predominantly American barriques.

Not an intense structure but great length of flavour, soft tannins and strong Shiraz characters of dark berry and vanillin. There is sufficient complexity for medium term ageing (3-6 years) but great with food now.

An early drinking style that will soften with medium term bottle maturation. Excellent fruit weight and balance being the features.

Suggested Foods: Lamb, veal and pasta
