The name of this wine is taken from the cliffs along Gulf St. Vincent, which are particularly significant in Aboriginal culture. The ochre was once used by local tribes for body painting and later exported to make paint in England which was used in London's original red pillar-boxes.
This wine is a classic blend of Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale Merlot, and it will ravish your senses!
Aroma: The Hills component offers attractive pure berry fruits, mulberry, boysenberry, blackcurrant, while the McLaren Vale parcels deliver milk chocolate and ripe plums to the mix.
Palate: Time has added to the complexity of the flavours adding subtle leathery and woody spice undertones. The mid-palate is round and silky. A lick of wood on the finish adds a hint of vanillin sweetness to the slightly rustic tannins, rounding out what is a wonderfully balanced and extremely drinkable red wine.
