Winemaker's Notes

It would have been hard to have planned a more perfect Barossa Valley vintage than 2006. After a wet Spring by early summer the vines were healthy and strong, and set good conservative crops. Warm days but a lack of any heat spikes in February, combined with cool nights meant that the vines, under no stress, accumulated sugars and flavours quickly. This wine is a lively purple red in colour. The aroma is floral - rose petals and raspberries with a hint of nutmeg. The palate has gravelly tannins and long black cherry flavours that are made silky by the cofermentation with Viognier and spicy with the addition read more...of Grenache. Drinks superbly now, but look for it to develop some classic aged savoury flavours over the next five years. (hide)
