The 2016 Vintage was warm and dry throughout Summer allowing for small berries within intense colour and flavour, giving high levels of ripe skin tannins.
This McLaren Vale Shiraz fills your mouth with rich red berry flavours and peppery undertones which are augmented by the maturation in small french oak. The wine is juicy & soft with a long smooth finish.
Colour: Deep red/purple with crimson hues
Bouquet: Dark red berries, nutmeg, white pepper, subtle oak and complex barrel ferment characters showing through.
Palate: Mouth-filling, elegant, flavoursome, red berries, integrated oak, but above all; soft and velvety. Palate lingers well after the wine has been swallowed.
Region: Willunga/McLaren Vale, South Australia
Maturation: 50% new American Oak; 50% made up of one and two year old French Oak for 18 months
