Crimson with purple hues. Vibrant notes of chocolate and raspberry, brown spice and hints of vanillin oak. Fantastic natural sweetness and fruit drive through the entire palate, with the chocolate and raspberry notes following through from the nose. This is a medium bodied wine, which shows richness without being overpowering. The back palate is textured and the layered tannins assist with the overall weight and integration.

A lifted and aromatic wine with notes of red cherry, black current, blueberry and a hint of spice.

After over 800mm of rain in 2016, which is 250mm above average for McLaren Vale, the vines cruised into January with a healthy amount of soil moisture and what appeared to be good crops. A further 79mm of rain in January delayed ripening, combined with mild summer temperatures -and an Indian summer, the vines continued to show no signs of stress. The harvest commenced on 24th February, a relaxing one month after 2016. A perfect long slow ripening season was enhanced by no heat waves and good soil moisture levels. We are delighted with the quality of vintage 2017, exceptional and outstanding come to mind, with our philosophy of picking when flavour is at its peak, paying off once again. Happy drinking.
