Combines the deft winemaking touch of uber-ripe fruit, with
freshness of style and overt but not clumsy oak barrel maturation.
It’s rich and concentrated with the full-body of the Barossa at its
best. Joyous sweet damson with clove and cinnamon spices on
the aroma. It’s a slick, high production values style of wine: velvety
smooth, full-bodied with graceful tannins and more of that spicy
and liquorice dark enveloping fruit. A serious drink. Decant it if
drinking now to open it up or leave it tucked safely in the cellar
for ten-fifteen years.
