Colour: Deep, dark red with a black core. Bright purple hue around the meniscus.
Aroma: Bright aromas of blueberries, blackberry and black cherry. Floral aromas of acacia flowers weave through the wine. Notes of game, pepper and nougat add depth and complexity.
Palate: Full bodied but very buoyant. Bright flavours are lifted and accented by notes of fresh blue and blackberry with hints of plum. Creamy complexity through the palate adds depth and interesting texture. Palate has great depth and a coating nature but doesn't feel heavy. Tannins start mid-palate and leave a lovely rolling chewy nature. Spicy through the finish with vanilla and sweet baking spices. Classic Barossa notes of coal dust weave through the late palate which is both long and complex.
Wine SpectatorAromatic, with a touch of dried rose petal and white pepper up front, giving way to a smooth and supple blend of black tea, cherry and huckleberry flavors. Touches of vanilla and spice show on the finish, with the tannins developing a slight chew. Drink now through 2026. 4,820 cases made.
