Winery Tasting Notes
Deep ruby red with crimson edges.
A classic Coonawarra nose at the riper end of the spectrum, with concentrated dark berry fruits, blackberry leaf and chocolate, complemented by spicy, toasty oak.
Elegant yet powerful, with refined intense berry fruit flavours and integrated cedary oak, supported by a core of firm yet supple tannins, with a long, savoury finish.
Carefully cellaring this wine for the next 5-10 years will enable further development and integration of the ripe and intense fruit flavours it has come to be known for.
Recommended with pan-cooked eye fillet of beef, served with beef jus and Boulangere potatoes. The simplicity of the beef with the crispy dish of thinly sliced baked potatoes showcases the ripe intensity of this wine.
