Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The colour is deep garnet red with vibrant crimson hues and a hint of mahogany on the rim.

Aroma

The bouquet is powerful with the distinct complexity of earthy dark herbs. It has traditional Barossa individuality with tobacco, cedar wood and smoked meat. The fruit shows plum and cherry with violets and licorice spice. Premium oak is obvious with subtle hints of eucalyptus and rich dark chocolate.

Palate

The multi layered complexity flows through onto the palate opening with earthy herbs like dill, basil, lavender and cedar wood. The mid palate is weighty and full, dominated by gripping tannins and brandy soaked berries with finely integrated oak. The back palate is sophisticated and refined with smoky game, dark chocolate and freshly roasted coffee. The heady alcohol delivers a velvety smooth finish with lingering flavours and gentle drying tannins.

Food Matching

This wine is packed with flavour and substance and rightly deserves a place at grand banquets with suckling pig cooked over a charcoal pit, roast goose and crispy skin duck.

Cellaring Potential

This is another stand out classic from Hans Stockhausen with immaculate winemaking clearly intended for long term aging. This is a fine example of solid Barossa Cabernet from premium vineyards. This wine may generate a light bottle crust with cellar aging. We recommend decanting before consuming.

Grays Tasting Panel Review

Coffee and cigarbox, some savoury notes of pencil shaving on the nose. Refreshing acidity, tannin is soft, not drying. Elegant and smooth palate.

The aging process will continue in bottle and over time this wine will develop a light bottle crust. We recommend you allow it to breathe for an hour before consuming or decant.
