Tasting Notes

Deep and dark black/red core in colour with a crimson edge. Big expressive nose with an array of aromas including cut black plums, dark cherry, leather saddle, coffee, chocolate and spice.


This wine is sourced from a single old vineyard from what we consider one of the Barossa’s finest growers.

2010 was one of the standout vintages of the last decade. An ideal vintage, which gave us the benefit of perfectly ripened fruit. The smooth flow of vintage allowed us to select specific fruit parcels and define the wine as much in the vineyard as in the winery.

The grapes were brought into the winery and crushed into old vats where the fermentation was initiated by “wild” yeasts found on the grape skins. Careful extraction and short post fermentation maceration were followed by soft pressing. The wine was then transferred into brand new oak barrels where the malolactic fermentation was completed before racking and maturation for 36 months in barrels. A careful assemblage and barrel selection was followed by minimal filtration and bottling.
