Rack of lamb, miso poached eggplants, shaved golden beetroots and peppered lambs tongue.
12 months in French oak hogsheads (30% new, 30% 1-y.o., 40% 2-y.o.).
Deep mauve, purple at rim.
A carnivoric aromatic indulgence - raw red meat (tartare); salt-cured Italian meats, carpaccio. Spices infused, á la - pepper steak, Worcestershire garnish with fruits not overtly prominent. In its youth, steel-cut oats - fresh, not packaged. Yes, definitely oatmeal. And subtle oak.
Sage and bay leaf coupled with Indian spices (oak-derived) and dark-berried fruits. Type of oak? Tell-tale French. Velvety and viscous rather than manifesting the typical regional grip shielded by an abundance of even, clay-like, grainy and slippery tannins. Substantial! Coonawarra.
Above-average temperatures were recorded in winter and continued throughout spring. Rainfall was below average throughout winter, due to a drier August, and dry conditions persisted through spring resulting in early vine growth. The summer period saw rainfall over 10mm higher than the long-term average due to a high rainfall event occurring in January, pre-veraison. Moderate temperatures from early summer through to vintage meant that ripening was steady with the Coonawarra recording ten days over 35 degrees during the summer period.
