THe WINEMAKING

To begin with, this wine was fermented as more than 10 individual parcels, 30% of this wine has spent 2 months in our large format, aged oak vats with a combination of newer oaks being used including multiple different toasts of Hungarian and American oak.

The Vineyard

The maritime influence at our Langhorne Creek vineyard that is created by the afternoon sea breezes allows fruit flavours to evolve without excessive sugar production. The limestone based soils create wines of power and elegance with great varietal character. This vineyard is ideal for precision control over water use on the vines and known to provide more structural wines.

Terrific value here, this wine has some real exuberance and will drink very well for the next half dozen years and more.

The palate is soft and supple with the ample fruit supported by a mix of oak and fine chalky tannins.

A cool climate style with the added layering of handy oak and great fruit source.

Taste profile

Primary flavors

Plum

The flavors of Plums can span from red to black, from freshness to sweetness to Prunes. Red Plum flavors are found in easy-drinking red wines. Black Plum flavors are found in full bodied red wines.

Blueberry

While some wines smell remarkably blue, only a few wines taste distinctly of the actual blueberry fruit. Instead the flavor can often be found hiding in layers of taste, swirled amongst other fruits in a decidedly delicious blue concoction of floral sweetness and acidity.

Black Pepper

With some wines, you could be forgiven for thinking someone had sneakily ground some pepper into your glass. Overall, the characteristic flavour of black peppercorns is spicy, woody, warm, terpy and herbaceous.

Secondary flavors

Chocolate

The chocolate and mocha flavors common in wine come from oak. There's no real chocolate in your wine but winemakers use toasted French or American oak to give your wine rich dark and milk chocolate and cocoa flavors.

Cedar

Cedar-smell is likened to pencil shavings and is often associated with many red wines matured in oak barrels.
