Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Complex layers of dark berry fruits and plum, hints of chocolate and vanillin oak and a soft, earthy note. Very fine, smooth tannins add to the mouthfeel and lingering finish.
Vineyard Notes
2017 was a return to a more traditional Coonawarra vintage with a cool growing season and long, mild summer. harvest was later than in recent years; ideal conditions in the lead up produced outstanding Merlot fruit with deep colour, rich flavours and fine tannins.
Winemaker Notes
Maturation of select parcels for 12 months in a combination of used French oak (55%) and older American oak (45%) barrels, adding complexity and suppleness.
Food Pairing Notes
Pan seared five spice duck, BBQ steak with garlic, herb butter or baked brie with roasted grapes.
