Overview

The 2006 vintage was good, set up early with good winter and spring rains. This provided good grapevine canopies ideal for quality ripening. The rains held on for quite some time but the weather dried up at the right time, and warmed up considerably bringing many varieties to ripeness almost simultaneously resulting in a very hectic few weeks!

Expert Reviews

A 70/30% blend of McLaren Vale and Coonawarra grapes; it has retained very good hue, and is still at the start of what will be a long journey; it is flush with blackcurrant fruit supported by ripe tannins and oak from 21 months in barrel; it is positively juicy, and has great length. Rating 95 - Drink by 2031 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The colour is very deep red with youthful purple hues.

Aroma

The aroma shows intense varietal characters of menthol, black olive, mint and capsicum with subtle complex oak in the background.

Palate

The palate is wonderfully supple and fleshy with fine firm tannins providing excellent structure. Intense flavour, good length and well balanced acid complete this outstanding wine which will evolve and develop further with bottle maturation.
