A warmer spring and cooler summer saw the Barossa begin vintage 2012 with some exceptionally healthy vines and expectations for early maturation. Maximum mean temperatures in the Barossa in spring (September to November) were slightly above average, which led to good vegetative growth, healthy vines and potentially early maturation, while summer mean maximum temperatures were cooler than average.

‘The quality is surprising considering there’s change to be had from a twenty. Fruit is sourced from estate-owned vineyards and matured in a combination of old American and French oak. The effect is an amplification of simple but pleasing ripe fruit tones, while the grain of oak works its magic with acidity to create good structure.’ Rating 89 - Ray Jorden - Alan Hunter, Courier Mail, August, 2014
Winery Tasting Notes
Deep red in colour.
This nose has lifted plum and subtle spice characters.
The palate is medium bodied with an abundance of the primary characters carried through from the nose of plum and spice. All of this with an underlying herbal note adding depth and complexity. Very evenly balanced mouth-filling palate, with a long acid line and silky tannins.
