Availability: In stock
WHY DO WE LIKE THIS WINE
The South East growing districts of South Australia enjoyed above average winter rainfall, while McLaren Vale recorded well below average. September temperatures were cool with little rainfall resulting in some isolated frost events. Summer was generally hot, with high temperatures delaying veraison. Irrigation was crucial to keep vines in good health. The proximity of the Southern Ocean played an important role in moderating temperatures allowing for a high quality harvest, albeit with smaller yields than average. The mouthfeel is succulent with abundant freshness/energy. Cherries are consistent from the nose to the palate, as is liquorice, however in this instance the impression is more akin to Dutch liquorice. Saffron, coffee bean, sarsaparilla and cola creaminess adds to the textural interest, almost certainly oak derived elements that soften and encapsulates the tannins.
