Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The colour shows wonderful depth and intensity for its age.

Aroma

The aroma is generous and inviting and very characteristically McLaren Vale. Bright berry fruits marry well with the toasty French oak and myriad of aromas beginning to develop as the wine matures.

Palate

The palate is full flavoured yet shows restraint. Fine powerful tannins come forward as the ripe fruit flavours subside revealing the distinctive and elegant

structure beneath. Truly a wine to be savoured as time in the glass reveals more layers and hidden secrets.
