Winemakers Notes:
COLOUR:
Deep dark red with purple on rim.
NOSE:
Ascending waves of fruits, blueberry, crushed boysenberry and soaked damson plum, sensitively propelled by (oak-derived?)
cedar and ginger.
Beneath, roasted meats, juniper, sage and Chinese BBQ artefact.
Expressive, elemental, ethereal, earthy.
PALATE:
Full-bodied, unevolved and youthful. Whilst Barossa textural generosity and richness is pre-supposed, this palate at this stage verges towards ‘essence’—although thankfully not via an alcohol or a buffed-up concentration pathway…An emulsion of sarsparilla, chinotto, and mascarpone replete with ripe, grande tannins and acidity conspiring to maintain balance and dimension. Masses of fruits, berries, chocolate, and mocha.Richness and power, with stature and charm
