"The 80yo vineyard has 5% grenache sprinkled through it, hand-picked and sorted, 25% whole bunches, wild yeast open-fermented, 30 days on skins, matured for 15 months in medium and large French oak (10% new), 200 dozen made. Excellent colour, and from this point on you know you're onto something special. It is strikingly elegant for a wine with intense purple and black fruits, tannins barely raising a ripple to disturb the surface." 97 points, James Halliday Wine Companion, August 2017.

Oak

Matured in French oak for 15 months.

Colour

Deep red.

Nose

The nose is dark and ripe, unveiling with time aromas of dark berry fruit, blueberry, kirsch and mince pie spice.

Palate

The palate is supple and intense with licorice and dark fruit flavours wrapped in savoury spice and framed by fine tannins. A significantly ricer wine than 2014, the opulent fruit is balanced well by stalky whole bunch complexity and beautifully fine tannins.

Background

Sourced exclusively from the Marschall vineyard, an eighty year old organic and dry-grown vineyard, planted on its own rootstocks to clones unknown, in the Vine Vale district. The loose sandy soils reflect sunlight and are well suited to Mataro. Made using Burgundian techniques and a 'hands-off' philosophy. The fruit is hand picked and sorted before a cold-soak for five days at seven degrees. The fruit is primarily de-stemmed and split into small one and two-tonne fermenters with around fifteen percent whole bunches laid across the bottom. Hand plunged twice daily and allowed to ferment totally dry before pressing in a very old very gentle pneumatic press and racking to old large format oak (four hundred and eighty litre). Not racked or stirred for 15 months. Bottled without fining and minimal sulphur addition. The 2015 vintage on the eastern slopes of the Barossa Valley was outstanding. Good soil moisture allowed the vines to weather the warm, dry summer before late rains refreshed the vines before cooler conditions allowed a long, even ripening.
