Palate

The palate initially displays Coonawarra's characteristic length and acidity, then begins to relax and show it's generous depth of flavour and finely textured tannins. Blue fruits, spice and herbaceous flavours are complemented by subtle toasty, nutty oak. Give this wine some time to open up in the glass and see it grow.

Food Pairing

Enjoy with rich red meat dishes, hard cheese, savoury meat based wood oven pizza and strong Italian pasta.

VINTAGE INFORMATION: In the Coonawarra, vintage 2016 commenced quite early, with a warmer than usual spring advancing the whole season and harvest dates arriving a couple of weeks early. Pre-Christmas temperatures were warm which was ideal, with yields seeing a slight increase on some previous years. Post-Christmas temperatures were milder with the combination of warm days and cold nights extended the ripening period while delivering very promising fruit across all varietals. Overall 2016 was another very good vintage.

Alcohol 14.5%
Maturation Aged for 22 months in new (20%) and seasoned American and French oak hogsheads.

“A magnificent rendition of the variety; the bouquet shows blackcurrant, cedar, tobacco and subtle spice characters on the nose, leading to a wonderfully weighted palate that’s flavoursome and persistent. It’s refined and sumptuous at the same time, finishing impressively long and delicious. 5 stars.”
