Winemaker's Notes:

Blackened crimson. Lifted roast meats, spiced licorice, bitter chocolate, black fruit, chocolate pudding, crushed rock, peat, smokey teabag and gunpowder unite within this weighted and somewhat recessed example. Sexy amalgamation of richness defined by great balance, positioned acidity and lengthy tannins. The incredible mid-palate weight provides an excellent length of intensity and considerable nuance of flavour pursues.

About Clarendon Hills:

Clarendon Hills is a small family-run winery based in Clarendon, South Australia. The company was founded by biochemist, Roman Bratasiuk, in 1990. The story of Clarendon Hills is one of passion, dedication and commitment to exception wine. It all began when this biochemist and wine lover decided to produce his own wine. Though he'd never trained as a winemaker, Roman let himself be guided by his refined palate and scientific knowledge. Following his favorite producers and preferred styles, Roman sought to make a version of the wines he loved.
