Silken, savoury and medium bodied. Ripe cassis flavours initially, followed closely by a complex mix of savoury characters with more cigar-box, brambles and earthy undergrowth notes that really fill out the mid palate. There’s higher toned red fruits as well on return to the glass with a lovely, tight spine of acidity running through, really drawing the palate out.

VINEYARD INFORMATION
Vineyard Notes
Located at the southern end of McLaren Vale, about 4km east of the coastal town of Port Willunga, the soil here is heavy grey loam mixed with black Biscay clay and sits above ancient Gnaltinga formation bedrock. Strong vine growth in spring is tempered by summers dry winds, developing pure, bright and savoury fruit flavours that are tempered by cooling afternoon sea breezes. VINE AGE: 20+ years ELEVATION: 25m above sea level SOIL TYPE: Black Biscay Clay
WINEMAKING & TECH INFORMATION
Winemaker Notes
Twenty per cent of the fruit is dried using the ancient Italian Appassimento technique prior to fermentation, for approximately 7-8 weeks. The remaining grapes are fermented on skins for six to ten days, at cool temperatures to enhance pure berry fruit. Aside from producing a wine with a complete framework of tannin and intense fruit characteristics, this process adds a beautiful sensuous plushness to the mid palate. HARVEST DATE: March 2017 MATURATION: 100% used French Oak. 14 months. ALCOHOL (Alc/Vol): 14.5% RS: 3.6g/L pH: 3.48 TA: 6.83g/L
