Flame grilled fillet of beef accompanied with a red wine jus, a hearty lamb stew, pizza or a grilled vegetable paella with Mediterranean spices.
Matured in French and American oak.
Deep burgundy with cherry red hues.
Layers of ripe mulberry, red licorice and cedar spice with floral violet undertones.
The full-bodied palate delivers an array of rich, ripe forest fruits and exudes classic Barossa Valley varietal characteristics with hints of white pepper and a firm tannin structure to finish.
An early vintage coupled with great ripening conditions resulted in generous wines from the Barossa Valley in 2016. Shiraz performed well with high baumes keeping us on or toes. Ripe fruit flavour and good weighted wines helped us shape a classic and popular Barossa style with loads of raspberry, licorice, black pepper and chocolate for complexity. The fruit was picked in the cool of the night and fermented in open fermenters with daily pump overs and several drain downs. It has spent 24 months in a mix of American and French oak Hogs head barrels. The oak is supportive and not overpowering, nurturing the natural fruit and tannins from a great vintage.
