Overview

The 2010 season was relatively mild across the McLaren Vale region. Above average spring rains mixed with cool sunny days allowed for an even budburst and early uniform flowering. Warm summer days (25 - 35 °C) interspersed with mild rain events harnessed delicate flavours at low sugars and a crisp acid. Fruit was hand harvested at optimal tannin and flavour ripeness with a good amount of natural acidity.

Expert Reviews

The McLaren Vale Gateway Vineyard is in the final stages of biodynamic conversion; the colour is a positive purple-crimson; is diametrically opposed to the flavour, texture and structure of Mea Culpa, here full-bodied, verging on thick, with dense black fruits and bitter chocolate flavours. Rating 94 - Drink by 2030 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Dark plums, freshly dug earth. Cocoa, raspberries and blueberries, hints of violets. Bright and fragrant –has the regional McLaren Vale nose but with a cool edge.

Lots of LIFE to the aromas.

Palate

Earthy and dark. Hints of graphite. Silky and thick but the fruit is tamed by solid bunchy tannins. Wonderful restrained length.

Food Matching

Aged Cheddar. Braised beef cheeks on pappardelle pasta with gremolata. Homemade shepherds pie.
