95 Point Rated - James Halliday Wine Companion
"94.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, the balance petit verdot, merlot and shiraz. Destemmed whole berry open ferments, matured in a mix of oaks and ages, the most significant 15% new French hogsheads for 15 months. Yet another wine to shine thanks to the vintage. Elegant, medium-bodied, blackberry/cassis, fine tannins, and good oak management."
The 2017 vintage in the Barossa saw cool, wet conditions during December, January and February resulted in a very late vintage. Warm, mild conditions through March & April combined with excellent canopy density allowed the fruit to attain excellent flavour ripeness while maintaining good levels of natural acidity.
After crushing and de-stemming, the fruit was fermented on skins to extract the colour and flavour. The process has allowed maximum flavour and tannin extraction, and added structure and texture to this wine. Post fermentation, parcels of the wine were transferred to a combination of new and old French oak for 21 months before being bottled.
