Deep crimson with purple hues.
A fragrant, expressive nose of blackberry and cherry fruits heightened by regional nuances of eucalypt and mint and supported by subtle warm spice and cedary oak.
The palate is medium to full bodied with layers of bramble berry fruits, fresh eucalypt notes and subtle oak. The wine finishes with finely textured, elegant tannins, displaying great finesse and fruit presence.
Grey Label Cabernet Shiraz was sourced from a region as unique as the character it bestows upon the wine. The vineyards of Langhorne Creek lie on deep, rich, alluvial soils along the banks of the Bremer River. Flooding of the river provides natural irrigation while depositing silts and sediments, which concentrate the natural eucalyptus oils in the soil and furnish the wine with its distinctive minty allure. Harvested at optimum flavour ripeness, fruit was crushed and fermented in small open-top fermenters. Plunging and gentle pumping over were utilised to optimise flavour, colour and tannin extraction, allowing for richness and fruit depth while keeping tannins plush. Some parcels completed fermentation in barrel, integrating oak characters and contributing to mid-palate texture and complexity, while others were left on skins until dry to lengthen the finish.
