The growing season was generally drier than usual with a particularly hot December which contributed to slightly reduced yields, but with some helpful cooling as the monsoons arrive in January the fruit ripened nicely. Cooler nights into April helped to give a successful harvest.
Concentrated ripe blackcurrant and cherry fruits, with black pepper and light cinnamon spice, complemented by chocolate and mocha notes.

WINEMAKINGSpecific parcels of fruit were selected across a variety of regions in South East Australia, including quality fruit from the warmer parts of South Australia including McLaren Value (34%) and Currency Creek (18%) with a sprinkle of Claire Valley. This resulted in a very drinkable wine offering ripe fruits and soft tannins. The fermentation of the fruit was across a span of 5-7 days at mild to warmer temperatures. Wines then spent up to 9 months in contact with a mixture of new and second-year oak prior to bottling.
PALATEA rich and intense palate of dark fruits, complemented by velvety tannins, delivering a balanced finish.
