Tasting Notes

Deep dark centre with a ruby red hue. On the palate it shows excellent fruit purity and texture with ripe blackberry, red plum and some cherry fruits coming to the fore. Again an expressive mid-palate showing hints of vanilla, licorice and mocha which mesh seamlessly with the judicious French oak characters as the wine flows to a finish that shows great persistence, ripe, super-fine tannins and a seam of balanced, bright acidity. This is a style of wine that requires decanting and time to breathe to soften prior to consuming although will be cellared prior to release the wine has the fruit, alcohol and tannin structure to ensure cellaring for many more years where it will continue to evolve.

Really good winter and early spring rains filled the soils and set the vines up well for the season. Late spring and summer were hot and dry although some cool overnight temperatures did caused some issues in some blocks. Harvest was earlier than usual but a rain event and cool weather in February caused the vintage rush to slow to a nice pace.  Despite crop levels being down overall we were exceptionally happy with the quality of fruit produced due to weather patterns the fruit was small although really full of flavour and vibrancy.The fruit was transported to the winery where it was gently de-stemmed into concrete open top fermenters. It was then carefully nurtured for 7 days on skins with pump overs occurring twice daily, varying in duration and intensity. When primary fermentation was almost complete, the wine was drained from the skins and the must is gently basket pressed for 8 hours. The wine remains in a stainless steel tank until primary fermentation is completed. It is then run directly into new French barriques where it spent the next 36 months. Once the oak and the wine had perfectly become one the wine is blended and bottled without the use of filtration or fining. 624 six packs were produced in total.

A wonderfully example of big and bold Barossa GSM which will stand the test of time, ensure it is allowed to breathe prior to consuming.
