Winemaker's Notes:

Dark berries with spicy stewed plums and dark cherries. Long lingering finish reflecting blackberries and blueberries on the palate, with fine tannins and notes of complex spices.

Pair with Italian dishes, ribs, grilled meats such as aged beef and lamb.

My Notes:

About 2 up:

2 up is sourced from vineyards located in Southern Fleurieu and McLaren Vale. The vineyards of the Southern Fleurieu contribute color together with a signature blackberry and spice. The McLaren Vale vineyards give depth and texture together with the complex spice, dark plums and cherry always associated with this region. Together the two regions provide depth, complexity and a powerful mid-palate. Two-up is a popular, centuries old, Australian game of chance played in the back of pubs using two pennies and a paddle called a "kip." Bets get placed, coins get tossed, and everyone goes wild till the pennies land… either both heads—a "two-up," tails or odds—a "one-up." If you get a two-up, you double your money. Odds, you simply throw again. If you get two tails, you lose and it's the next thrower's turn.
