Winemaker's Notes:

Number 71 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

"Our vineyard is in the coolest part of McLaren Vale, giving our low yields time to slowly accumulate concentrated powerful flavors of blackberry and plums, with hints of spice. The open fermenters and wild yeast allow maximum extraction and complexity with soft silky tannins."
-Peter Fraser, Winemaker
