Lifted notes of mulberry and ripe dark berry fruit with hints of menthol and tobacco leaf complexed by the dusty, eucalypt regional characters. Toasty oak adds further complexity.
A flavoursome amalgam of ripe dark berry fruit and toasty oak that adds further complexity with the dusty, almost earthy, and eucalypt flavours typical of this fascinating region.
In 1991, 15 of Langhorne Creek's best grape growers agreed to participate in a project aimed at making Australia's wine consumers aware of what winemakers have recognised for years- that this region is capable of producing wines to rank alongside Australia's best. Hence from the 1992 vintage, each supplied a selection of their best grapes which were processed at Bleasdale. The parcels are kept separate in new French and American Oak hogsheads. Paul Hotker puts together the best blend from all the parcels, and this wine is then given a further 20 months oak maturation. ***** The Growers for this wine were:- Snooks, George and Joe Borrett, John and Randall Follett, Rick Eckert, Sam & Jan Newell and Bleasdale Vineyards.
