Nick Bulleid's Tasting Notes
Background

The growing season leading to the 2019 vintage in McLaren Vale was very dry, resulting in low yields and concentrated flavours.

Colour
Deep, bright red with slight purple.

Nose
Red plum, blackberry and subtle hints of vanilla from oak.

Structure / Palate
Full-bodied. Rich, ripe red and dark plums. A touch of chocolate. Plenty of firm tannins.

The firm, balanced tannins match the flavours well. Thanks to the 2018/2019 growing season, this wine is a similar to our 2018 Block 8. Its great depth of flavour is typical of McLaren Vale and it will benefit from a short while in bottle, throughout winter, for its exuberance to settle down. While ready to give pleasure with full-flavoured foods, in particular red meat dishes, it will soften further and gain complexity past 2026.
