95 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Tasting Notes:
Intensely inviting complex aromas of dark fruits and berries complimented by red currant, hints of mocha, oak and spice.

Full-bodied, this wine displays up-front luscious fruit with chocolate, hints of mint/menthol and subtle oak spice. Balanced acidity and solid drive throughout the palate, combine to deliver mouth filling, velvety tannins and a long persistent finish.

Vineyards:
Selected from five micro-climatic regions of McLaren Vale. The first is from Seaview producing rich structural wines. The second is from Whites Valley, producing wines with textural tannins and great flavour depth. The third from McLaren Flat is off the vineyard surrounding the winery producing elegant lifted wines with fine tannins, The fourth from Blewitt Springs produces wines with elegant red fruits and hints of menthol, and the Last vineyard from Willunga produces full-bodied wines with very dark fruits.

Winemaking:
De-stemmed but not crushed into open fermenters followed by a 3-day cold soak. Plunged 3 times a day. 12 days on skins then pressed to finish malolactic ferment in barrel (New & seasoned French Oak). Each Batch is kept separate until blending after 15 months of oak maturation.

Oak:
15 months in new & seasoned French oak.
