Winemaker's Notes:

A dry, low cropping season following a continuation of drought conditions in Southern Australia which have now entered their eighth year.

The color has bright youthful purples and dark red, with an aroma of mixed berries with peppery, spicy overtones. On the palate the wine has very sweet fruit with fine grained tannins, excellent fleshy middle palate and a long soft finish.

My Notes:

About Bulletin Place:

Named for Bulletin Place House, Australia's oldest commercial building, which for 20 years was the home of Len Evans Wines. Wines for this label range from grapes grown in The Riverland and Adelaide plain. The wines offer extraordinary drinkability, assertive yet accessible varietal character, and represent a wonderful value.
