Bright, dense and deep crimson in colour. Dark morello cherries with herbaceous hints of rosemary on the nose. Full-bodied and robust with well-integrated tannins balanced by mid-palate supple fruit characters and acidity. A savoury wine with a smooth yet spicy finish.Assertive, full-flavoured dishes like: venison, spaghetti puttanesca, lentil soup, and roast duck with green peppercorn sauce.
92 Point Rated - Campbell Mattinson James Halliday Wine Companion
"It's a beefy, malty expression of the variety though it has good weight, texture and power and it's well framed by firm-but-appropriate tannin. It's in very good drinking shape now but there's no hurry. The linger of smoky tobacco notes is especially appealing."
Huon Hooke The Real Review
"Deep, youthful colour, still with strong purple tints. Concentrated super-ripe blackberry and dark chocolate aromas, a note of crushed seashells; the palate massively proportioned and a little extracted, with a touch of lingering bitterness in its tongue-gripping tannins. A no-holds-barred wine, perhaps not for everyone."
"A wine of good depth of colour, with a nose of mint and eucalypt overtones. It's rather shy in fruit, and the palate is simple with minty-herbal flavours and a dry finish."
There is a little rascal hiding in all of us; a sometimes naughty side. A mischievous bon vivant who loves the good times and late wild nights. This character symbolizes the nature of this Italian grape variety. Delicate red fruit aromas on the nose with a crazy savoury structure on the palate. We planted this intriguing variety at our estate in McLaren Vale and Mundulla in 2010.
We used traditional winemaking, focused on just capturing these interesting varietal characters. Aggressive tannins slowly softened with time in older 300 litres oak barrels. Further maturation will help the structure integrate and the flavours evolve.
