Grown on an organic vineyard in Barmera, these grapes thrive in the hot Riverland climate. Wine writer Max Allen describes Riverland Lagrein as a square peg in a round hole - growing so well having originated in the Italian Alps. Almost black in colour with black tea aroma, dark fruits and spicy French oak, this mighty red is not for the faint-hearted.

Colour

Deep, dark purple red developing brick red hues as it ages.

Nose

Dark tea, red fruit and oak.

Palate

A dry, tannic red wine with a little more grip than some, yet a wine with finesse and a balance between fruit, oak and tannin.

Background

Fourteen days on skins, 20-22-degree ferments is the stuff gold medals are made of. Purple red to black, black tea and black cherry, this wine has gone onto 20% new French oak with the balance into reconditioned French. The oak will build structure into this wine and carry it through 5 years or more in the cellar. A rich, tannic wine with colour, complexity and oak.
