Winery Tasting Notes

Colour - In the glass this wine is bright and enticing with a medium to deep cherry red appearance and dark burgundy hues reflecting this wine’s maturity.

Aroma - The bouquet is intense, complex and powerful. It opens with lifted floral scents of rose petal and violets then builds with earthy spices and cedar wood to dark plums, cherries and blackberry.

Palate - The palate is ripe and round with red cherries, toffee apple and dark plums. The earthy rustic charm of old bush vine Grenache dominates the flavour while premium Willunga Shiraz adds a chocolate richness and ripe Mataro gives a spicy lift. On the mid palate it reveals anise, violets and earthy herbs ahead of a warm, dry finish. Cedary oak is obvious but well integrated with fruit, acid and tannins. There is a noticeable alcohol lift that enhances the smooth richness on the back palate

Food Matching - This is a distinguished wine, ideal with the rustic country dishes of Spain, Provence and Italy. It’s full bodied and flavoursome with enough spice that it can handle Asian and Indian cuisine, try it with your favourite curry dish.

Cellaring Potential - This wine has had three and a half years cellar maturation before bottling and a further six months in bottle before release. It is now ready to be enjoyed and it will continue to drink well until 2025.

Winery Profile

The “Premium Reserve” label is allocated to only the most outstanding wines. Peter Jorgensen hand selects truly premium, benchmark wines with rich fruit intensity, complex flavours and structure combined with their long term aging ability. All Premium Reserve wines are an expression of excellent vineyard management and winemaking. The resulting wines are extremely limited and are treated with minimal filtration and additives which result in great length and balance. They are wines that take time to evolve and are given extended cellar maturation to allow all elements to become integrated before bottling. The aging process will continue in bottle and each wine will develop a light crust over time. Please allow this wine to breathe for at least 30 minutes prior to consuming.
