This wine is the result of block selection, the parcels have been kept separate, nurtured, and tasted many times!
This wine shows an intense perfumed aroma of violets and spice with a bramble lift. On the palate the wine is rich and fleshy with fine tannins.

Matured for 14 months in Hungarian oak (with lees stirring), the best barrels selected for this wine; the mouthfeel is rounded and velvety, the flavours of confit plum balanced to perfection by savoury acidity. Rating 93 - Drink by 2020, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2014).
“Best barrels” release of malbec from Bremerton in Langhorne Creek.
This is a sturdy, serious-faced wine. It has some cuddly fruit but it comes with gruff, biting tannin. Iron fist and velvet glove, working closely but not entirely as one. Time/patience should help. Rating 90+ - Drink by 2024, Campbell Mattinson, winefront.com.au (MAY/2014).
