25 year old Coonawarra vines provide the fruit for this full bodied, complex wine. The sensational and attractive nose offers yummy dark black berry, plum and intense fruit richness alongside white pepper, hints of anise and cinnamon notes.
The mouthfeel is a perfect meld of intensity, simply awash with succulent fruit and depth from 22 months on French oak which has provided complexity and elegance to the palate!
Amazingly all this means it is still a wine with years to develop and the structure which remains tight will see further improvement with cellaring no doubt, but no one will begrudge you opening one or two right away!
From the Winery
Showing intense berry and distinctive ripe plum, intermingled with white pepper, licorice and cinnamon spices on the nose. The palate is supported by smooth and well-rounded tannins creating a subtle medium bodied wine of complexity. The wine was matured for an extended period of 22 months in French oak hogsheads helping to create a well-balanced and integrated wine, approachable now or allowing further development through careful cellaring.
