Tasting Notes by Nick Bulleid MW
Background

A cool spring led to a dry, warmer than average summer in Coonawarra, producing overall strong red wines with good depth of flavour and structure. The Shiraz grapes for this wine were all estate-grown. The fermentation was kept cool at 20-22°C to maximise fruit flavour and restrain the tannins. The wine was pressed just before dryness and finished fermentation in barrel to gain complexity and further softness. It was matured in barrel for 25 months.


Tasting Notes

Colour
Deep, bright red.

Nose
Red fruits with nutmeg and hints of dried herbs.

Structure / Palate
Medium bodied, yet with full red berry flavour. Development is beginning to add cigar box complexity. The wine finishes with firm, even tannins.

The wine shows typical Coonawarra finesse, yet with full flavour and firm structure. It is ready now and will soften and gain further complexity past 2020. It will accompany most red meat dishes, pasta and barbecued fare.
