Generous ripe fruit flavours of the Clare Valley are balanced with elegant, fine tannins, lifted mint character and velvety finish of the Coonawarra.
Clare Valley 52% / Coonawarra 48%
At release, the wine has a deep ruby red colour to the centre with a youthful purple hue to the edges.
There are lifted aromas of dark blackcurrant fruit along with subtle choc-mint and a hint of eucalypt.
On the palate, this is a rich, full-bodied wine with intense flavours of cassis and blackberry fruit along with attractive oak characters of cigar box and tobacco leaf. Overall, the wine is well balanced with complex, well-integrated, elegant tannins providing structure and an intense, persistent length to the finish.
The wine was matured for up to 12 months in French oak barrels (10% new and remaining in 1 to 4 year old) followed by fining, minimal filtration and then bottling.
Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a long term under ideal conditions.
