Pretty Good

Enticing deep, dark purple hues. The powerful intensity of forest berries, such as raspberries and blackberries, mix well with the ripe lift of Satsuma plums and chocolate, and five-spice savouriness, all enhanced by well-integrated oak freshness. Richly textured, yet showing finesse and excellent balance of juicy layers of blackberry, spice, plum and bitter chocolate. This persists through to a very long lasting velvety smooth finish capped by structured, soft tannins. The cellaring up to 5-8 years.

WINERY INFORMATION

Vineyard

Cape Barren wines are produced from vineyards particularly hand selected for their exceptional quality and consistency. Our reds are produced from the world renowned McLaren Vale region, from vines older than 45 years. These seriously old vines produce wines of supreme concentration and complexity not seen in younger vines. It is this history on which our future lies. With its picturesque and undulating terrain and maritime climate, McLaren Vale is one of the finest regions in the world for grape-growing — especially forShiraz and Grenache. 

Winemaking

Grapes from 3 separate vineyards were harvested at the peak of flavour ripeness and crushed separately. Fermentation proceeded for 8 days in upright static fermenters at around 20-23°C. The wine was pumped over skins twice per day, and was run off skins and pressed at 2 degrees Baume.
