Dense rich full fruit nose in the pepper-blood plum spectrum. Fine grained French oak has contributed layers of vanilla and cinnamon to complex the fruit.
This is a stylish wine. It has full flavour in which the seamless, silky tannins mould with the concentrated fruit to provide richness, yet it retains a tight, elegant structure.
The inherent fruit vibrancy of the wine comes from our 'Farm' block. Fruit is harvested at night to take advantage of the naturally cool temperatures, then fermented on skins for a week. A portion of the wine was barrel fermented to integrate the fruit and oak and racked several times to aid natural clarification, integrate the oak and to soften and complex the tannin structure. The fruit, sourced fruit from estate vineyards, has been selected to give the depth for which this wine is renown. The 2016 growing season was both drier and warmer than average in McLaren Vale. The region received 68% of its average rainfall from August to February. Temperatures were generally warmer particularly in October and December. Early February saw 31mm of much needed freshening rain followed slightly cooler than average temperatures to provide ideal conditions to slowly finish off the ripening process. The result was an early vintage with time to take in fruit as it was ready. Expect to see some really good wines from 2016.
