Vintage Great to see timely rainfall throughout the Barossa with falls being during critical times of the vines production thoughout the growing season. Great mild vintage for the  allowing for flavours to slowly build with excellent acid retention to aid in the wines freshness.

Bright dense ruby in colour. Vibrant fresh cherry fruits and violets on the nose showing great purity. Palate is juicy with creamy texture, more cherry, lovely chocolate notes & lovely fine tannins.  Terrific food wine.

Wine Making Made via a mixture of whole berry and 25% whole bunch natural yeast ferment in small open top fermenters, soft pump overs, basket pressed and bottled unfiltered.
