It shows mulberries, earth and leather on the nose with a rich bottle aged complexity. Soft fine tannins support the palate structure of the opulent wine. May develop a crust on aging.



The Story

This wine was sourced from the Temple Bruer vineyard in Langhorne Creek, South Australia.

After crushing, the must was fermented in open fermenters and pressed on the 12th March 2001. On completion of its primary ferment the wine underwent Malolactic fermentation. Vouges oak was used during the production of this wine.. The wine was then racked and matured in oak Stackvats and Barriques.

Very good colour for age; sweet red berry fruits on entry, then more spicy, savoury varietal nuances emerge; French oak makes a positive contribution.
