Intense deep ruby red with purple hues. Plum, blackberry, licorice with soft voluptuous oak and chocolate all playing supporting roles. This wine illustrates exactly how I have been handcrafting premium red wine for my entire life, in the vineyard. The terror and microclimate of specific blocks produce something different year with the obvious characters of this vintage being plum, anise, and chocolate. The extended time in barrel and use of different aged oak mainly older allowed this flavour to infiltrate the wine without overpowering it and to run seamlessly into the natural tannin structure of the wine.
Winter rains gave the vines a great start to the 2018 growing season. A warm and dry spring then early summer was relatively mild, resulting in good flowering and fruit set. The dry conditions continued with several heat spikes in late January and early February meaning the vines went dormant and this interrupted veraison, with the picking of some of my earlier ripening vineyards delayed until the beginning of March. Perfect, mild ripening weather followed to the end of April. Time will be the judge but i suggest 2018 has produced another stunning Barossa vintage with Shiraz my stand out variety.
