Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) The vineyards are in the Willunga district in the southern end of McLaren Vale. The heavy grey loam soil over sandstone, intermixed with black Biscay clay, combined with a maritime climate, contribute to an even ripening period and the development of rich fruit flavours and ripe tannins

Winemaker's Notes

" Deep garnet red and a big nose of blackberry, liquorice and dark plums. Spicy, dark and brooding blackberry fruits with powerful anise and sarsaparilla flavors on the palate. Also hints of cocoa and mocha. "
