Schist rock over blue grey clay and deep compacted broken down schist with red sandstone pebbles on the surface along creek line (Marananga - planted in 1899) / Loam over clay (Nuriootpa - planted in 1965). The Marananga block provides intense, old vine produce with particular “blue fruit” offerings. The Nuriootpa block provides more “black fruits.”

WINEMAKING

The fruit was hand harvested and given time on skins, pressed then put to barrel. Matured in 25% new French oak and the remainder 2 & 3 years old French oak for 15 months. No filtration.

 

TASTING NOTES

Colour: Plenty and garnet.
Nose: Full ripe plums, black cherries, with hints of

savoury spice and aromatics.

Palate: Fruit driven with smooth, supple tannins. Elegant and velvety with good structure and length.

"Very wild and complex dark-plum and blackberry aromas with a dense and rich array of tarry and fresh earthy notes, as well as light spices. The palate has effortless depth and rich fruit-flesh with a long, sexy blackberry finish. Drink or hold." - James Suckling
