Winemaker's Notes

Estate single vineyard wine grown in the chilly surrounds of Mt McKenzie in the Eden Valley crafted through via our Italian heritage appassimento dry racking.

"Firm and focused, offering a juicy core of blueberry and plum flavors that keep singing against refined tannins, with a kiss of sweet oak and a subliminal level of acidity as the finish sails on and on. Drink now through 2016. 450 cases made."

"Medium red-purple; a complex array of aromas and flavours ranging through sweet plum, blackberry, touches of dark chocolate, and spice; fine-grained tannins; Amarone style."

This wine is really pleasant to drink, pretty rich and oaky, not too sweet, it is really nice, super great on a cold day when you want a wine to warm up with. In the end though it is not that interesting regarding any fruity flavors, it does the job nicely with oakiness, this wine has its purpose, and though I might not buy again, it was a fun one to try.
