The 2015 vintage continues an excellent run of form for this McLaren Vale superstar.
The nose is ripe with red fruit, wild strawberry and dark plum aromas. More savoury tones of liquorice and black pepper perfectly balances the fruity intensity. The palate is intense with black cherry, pepper and cigar box aromas. 20 months in fine-grained French oak adds structure and powdery rich tannins that will see this wine age well into the next decade.
Awards and Accolades
95 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "Thankfully this isn't over the top, rich, ripe and commanding, certainly. Deep, dark crimson colour as with the fruit of plums and berries, but there's an overlying savouriness to this, a whisper of black pepper, cinnamon quills, crushed juniper and dark chocolate. The oak is well integrated with powerful and composed tannins and everything in balance."
