Tasting Notes by Nick Bulleid MW
Background

The BackVintage selected grapes from the Ruffilli Estate vineyards in the Willunga and Sellicks areas, and managed this wine through to bottling. The grapes were fermented in McLaren Flat and matured in McLaren Vale in Taransaud, Saury, Seguin French oak hogs heads under Mike Farmilo's watchful eye...

Nick Bulleid MW's Tasting Notes

The 2018 McLaren Vale vintage was warm, producing generously flavoured red wines. This wine has a rich nose of red plum, blackberry and subtle hints of vanilla from oak. The full-bodied palate has concentrated plum and dark flavour with distinct balanced tannins. It has the fruit and balance to drink well now yet the structure to gain complexity until at least 2025. The wine will suit flavoursome red meat dishes or barbecued vegetables.

The wine was matured in McLaren Vale in for 22 months in the BackVintage owned French oak hogsheads. During maturation, the wine was racked every three months to integrate the fruit and oak and produce a more complex wine.

The 2018 is an excellent follow-up to our 2016 edition of this wine. It will please lovers of reds with generosity, weight and considerable depth of flavour. It has the fruit and balance to drink well now yet the structure to gain complexity until at least 2025.
