Clare Valley 72% / McLaren Vale 28%
At release, the wine has a deep cerise red colour to the centre with a vibrant purple hue to the edges.
The wine has an intoxicating explosion of ripe black plum, blackberry and raspberry fruit along with a hints of vanilla bean and clove spice.
This is a magnificently luscious, full-bodied wine with layers of flavour. Dazzling ripe fruit flavours of cherries and plum along with confectionary red currant characters combine artfully attractive oak characters of roasted coffee beans and spice. Overall, the wine is well balanced with superb form and shape, the well-integrated oak tannins providing the palate with firm structure and delicious, persistent length.
The wine was matured in a selection of American oak hogsheads (combination of new and older oak) for an average of 12 - 15 months before being bottled.
Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a long term under ideal conditions.
