92% Shiraz, 4% Mataro, 2% Graciano, 2% Bonvedro, sourced from a number of low-yielding old-vine vineyards in the Barossa and Eden Valleys.
The nose is very ripe and lifted with primary fruit aromas of dark berries, ripe blood plans and exotic spice with only the lightest hints of oak. The palate is bold and effortless with a depth of spicy, dark berry fruit flavours wrapped in fine tannins before a finish given definition by whole-bunch derived grip and fresh acidity. This wine drinks well now but will improve significantly with twelve months in bottle before aging gracefully for well over five years.
