Winemaker's Notes

The majority of the blend is Cabernet Sauvignon (89%) from the Barossa Valley, with the balance being Langhorne Creek Shiraz and McLaren Vale Merlot. The 1998 vintage was considered a classic throughout South Australia and growing conditions were perfect in most regions.

The 1998 Black Label completed fermentation in new French and American oak prior to maturation in the same oak for 20 months. The wine has a beautiful deep purple colour with a bright crimson hue. On the nose and the palate the wine exhibits sweet peppermint characters with hints of chocolate, plum pudding, and licorice. The palate is rich, full bodied and beautifully structured indicating it will cellar well for 8-12 years. It is the perfect accompaniment to rib eye of yearling beef with roasted root vegetables.
