Overview

McLaren Vale experienced cool conditions in December 2008 and most of January 2009 with temperatures only climbing above 30 degrees on three days up until a hot spell in late January. The rest of 2009 summer was relatively mild allowing the grapes to develop with balanced characters.

The fruit for this wine was sourced from a single vineyard in the Maslin’s Beach area of McLaren Vale grown on the rare geological Blanche Point Formation.

The wine was fermented in a traditional open fermenter with a heading board system using gentle cap management techniques. The pressed wine was matured for 24 months in 85% new French and 15% new American hogsheads. This wine has not been fined and is unfiltered.

Expert Reviews

Full red-purple; the fragrant, black fruit bouquet leads into an elegant, medium-bodied palate that has admirable texture, structure and balance; there are notes of cedar, spice and a touch of chocolate, the superfine tannins running throughout the length of the palate. Rating 95 - Drink by 2030 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2011)
