Clare Valley 60% / McLaren Vale 40%
At release, the wine has a deep cerise red colour to the centre with a vibrant purple hue to the edges.
There are lifted aromas of black plum and blackberry fruit along with a hint of coffee bean and spice.
This is a luscious wine with layers of flavours of dark berry fruit, ripe cherries and plum along with attractive oak characters of roasted coffee beans and spice. Overall, the wine is well balanced with well-integrated tannins providing the palate with firm structure and persistent length.
The wine was matured for up to 12 months in French oak barrels (50% 2 yo, remainder 3 yo) prior to final blending and bottling.
Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a long term under ideal conditions.
