    Always picked on the cusp of ripeness with some whole-bunches retained during the fermentation. The Grenache component is sourced from up to four different vineyards across the Barossa, all aged between 25 & 76 years old. The Shiraz component is a blend of Eden Valley vineyards and the Mataro is sourced from a dry-grown vineyard on Mengler's Hill, Eden Valley. Each varietal component is fermented separately, resulting in more fruit definition, purity and accessibility.

    A bit of a hot spell during 2019 necessitated upping the amount of Shiraz (30%) and Mataro (20%).

    Raspberry jubes, pretty, some spice, hazelnut and peanuts. Medium-bodied, fresh, light tannin but enough to shape it, even feel, balance and high drinking appeal, slightly sticky texture on a finish that’s clean and pretty long, a sprinkling of dried herb in the aftertaste. Vibrant, even a little bit ‘minerally’. A bit of a delight, as it were.
