Colour

Nose

Lifted aromas of blackcurrant, complex black fruits with hints of Satsuma plum. A touch of chocolate from the Merlot, earthiness from the Cabernet and light tobacco, all combined with toasty oak.

Palate

Great depth of complex spicy fruits and ripe plums. Hints of black cherry and chocolate follow through the palate. Refined savoury fruit flavours, very fine long and well balanced tannins add complexity and integrity to this multidimensional wine. The finish is flavoursome and lingering.

Background

For Pat and Vicki Vasarelli, the pairing of food and wine is as much of an art as their lively marriage. Having emigrated to Australia from central Italy they continue the Italian tradition of making spicy pork sausages, yearlong cured prosciutto and strongly flavoured salted cod at their McLaren Vale home. The vineyard covers 40 acres and most of the root stocks are over 40 years old. Prior to establishing their own label, the Vasarelli's sold their fruit to Wirra Wirra, Ryecroft and Orlando.
