BOUQUET: The ripe fruit in this wine shows rich blood plum and dark olive characters and hints of black pepper and is overlayed with fine vanillin oak to give an extra level of complexity.

Terroir/Vinification

Climate MEDITERRANEAN
Harvest Machine at night
Vinification The focus in producing this wine is to have vibrancy of fruit on the nose and palate with a tight structure and attractive mouth filling roundness. The fruit was all grown on our Estate between the McLaren Vale and Willunga townships. Following fermentation on skins, the components were pressed before dryness and allowed some oak fermentation. On the completion of malo-lactic fermentation, the wine was ‘re-worked' and returned to oak for further maturation.
Aging 13 months maturation in predominantly French oak with some American Oak. 20% New French oak, 10% new American oak, balance 2-6 year old barrels.
Acidity 6.52
PH 3.62
Residual sugar 0.7
