Tasting Notes

    James Halliday Rating
  • Colour: Moderate garnet with purple depths.
  • Bouquet: Savoury, spicy earthy nose with red berry undertones
  • Palate: Soft, mid weight palate nicely balanced, with some flesh. Very smooth textured and even, flowing on to a long currant flower finish.
  • Vineyard & Vintage Comments: (Special Value Wine) The 2011 vintage was challenging to ripen to the typical Barossa style, but these vineyards gave very good spice in the Grenache. Slightly more Shiraz was used to fill out the mid. Fermentation was traditional as single parcels in small open fermenters at 25 to 30 deg C, followed by off lees maturation in old French oak.
