Roast Lamb or grilled vegetable Lasagne.
Subtle use of oak.
Deep red with purple hues.
Intense aromas of blackberry mingle with more savoury and red pepper notes with a gentle touch of oak.
Rich mouth filling flavours follow through from the initial impression of berries and more complex capsicum family characters with delightful savoury notes, some cassis, clean tannins and soft oak on the finish.
The grapes for this wine were sourced from the Angove Family's vineyards and premium growers in the Riverland, Southern Flinders and Limestone Coast regions. Soils are predominantly red sandy loam over limestone, on gently undulating east west ridges. Vintage 2019 started normally following a dry, yet cool, uneventful spring. As harvest progressed this changed and an unprecedented heatwave in early January caused the vines to shut down for a couple of weeks. With decades of experience in the region our vineyard team was well prepared and provided the vines with adequate water prior to this, ensuring healthy full canopies and fruit that was unaffected by this extreme weather event. As the weather moderated into February the vines awoke from their slumber and ripened the fruit to perfection. The grapes for this wine were picked at night to make sure that they were as cool as possible. Crushed to modern rotary fermenters the grapes were then allowed to macerate for 2 days before inoculation and fermentation. Pressed off skins 7 days later and allowed to go through the second malolactic fermentation. The wine has then had minimal handling prior to filtration for bottling.
