Delicious aromas of chocolate and raspberry with a hint of fresh ground coffee exude from this wine. The palate of this wine is luscious with berry fruit upfront mingling well with soft tannins and a savoury finish.
Awards and Accolades
2014 Vintage: 92 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "It lays on the vanillin oak but there's a wealth of sweet fruit in support. Dense plum, raspberry and dry spice flood the mouth with flavour. The simple things in life and all that. Warm mouthfilling style, ready to drink now."
2013 Vintage: 90 Points - Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front "An old faithful. It’s sweet and simple but it’s also mouth filling and satisfying. If you’re in the mood for a hearty red, this won’t disappoint you. Chocolate, rich plum, dry spice and vanilla. Warm-hearted but well balanced. Not hard to take."
2012 Vintage: 93 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "Full purple-crimson; both the bouquet and palate speak with clarion clarity of their place of origin, with blackberry, plum, dark chocolate and fruitcake; fine, ripe tannins and well-integrated oak complete the picture."
From the Winery
Individual vineyard parcels were fermented separately in various fermenters. The parcels were pressed off skins once fermentation was completed with selected parcels matured in seasoned oak to bring complexity to the blend, while other components remained in tank to bring freshness and fruit lift. Prior to blending, each component was reassessed to ensure that the right balance of lifted fruit and complexity was achieved.
