Daly Road has deep red, sandy loam soils, perfect for producing finely textured wine with great complexity. Shiraz and Mourvèdre thrive at Daly Road, where the finesse and character of the south of the Barossa shines.
The different grape varieties were fermented separately in a combination of 7 and 11 tonne open fermenters. Fermentation was generally complete after 7 days, during which the fermenters were pumped over 3 times daily. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was blended and matured in a combination of American and French oak hogsheads for 14 months.

While the colour doesn't set the pulse racing, this wine reveals more and more each time it is retasted both in terms of its complexity and length. The overall flavour profile is savoury and spicy; there are lively red cherry and fresh plum fruits, the package given life and lift by the moderate alcohol and fine tannins.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep red, with vibrant purple hues.
The nose is a complex array of raspberry and forest fruits, with rich plum and blueberry fruit in support.
The palate is well balanced with lovely supple tannins, where flavours of rich ripe berries are integrated with spices such as cinnamon and cloves.
This wine will improve with short-term cellaring, and is an impressive match with French dishes such as beef ragu or traditional roast pork.
