Tasting Notes

  • Colour: Deep ruby red.
  • Bouquet: A cornopeia of spices, spilling over black cherries with whiffs of licorice and strawberries.
  • Palate: Full, supple, balanced, layered, velvety and long berry spices.
  • Vineyard & Vintage Comments: Our 4 acre Grenache block is the highest in our stand-alone vineyard at Trial Hill, with a beautiful Norht-facing aspect high above the Barossa Valley. The soil is red-brown earth formed from marble and calsilicate rock, with micas, schists and quartzes and underlying water-retentive red clay. A good vintage. The grapes were picked in early April. Fine weather throughout allowed for clean even ripening without disease pressure. Moderate yields.
