The major percentage of this wine is from Kangarilla Road's
McLaren Flat vineyards. These vineyards located at the northern
part of the foothills ripen later than other sub-regions, resulting in
"cooler climate" spicy aromatic, dark berry driven wines with intense
mid to back palate presence and an abundance of soft velvety
tannins. These wines tend to develop best in French oak, however
second and third use American oak also provide great depth. The
second component is sourced from both the Blewitt Springs and
Seaview areas where soils range from mostly deep sands to red
earth on limestone. The resultant wines display spicy, bold, dark
plum characters- very important nuances to the 2006 wine. The
final component is from a vineyard in the Sellicks sub-region which
is very close to the sea. Shiraz ripens early here also with very low
yields. The wines have herbaceous characters with firm Cabernetlike
Aromas of spicy mulberry conserve followed by a smooth mix of
earthy black and red berry fruits on the mid and back palate. They
all combine beautifully with the abundance of soft tannins.
"Firm in texture, showing a sweetness and suppleness under the tannins that lets the racy blackberry, cherry and spice flavors come through beautifully. The flavors last on the deftly balanced finish. Best from 2011 through 2017."
