Tasting Notes :
Shiraz (63%) and Mataro (37%) vineyards located in Ebenezer, Moppa and High Eden.
Savoury, broody nose where roasted chestnut, hazelnut, dried cherry, mulberry and sweet cassis elements are framed by more delicate ground coffee, dried citrus rind and fresh tarragon notes. Time in the glass brings brighter, sour edged plum and liquored cherry notes.
Dark plum, ripe blackberry fruit and suede lead on the attack. Core flavours get darker and more roasted through the palate and are lifted with delicate dried floral notes on the finish. The palate is driven by a streak of cherry pit like acid and firm pickled walnut tannin. Full and vigorous, strong fruit with equally strong structure, fresh.
