Sommelier Notes

Exceptional old-vine fruit was sourced from the famed Ebenezer sub district at the northern tip of the Barossa Valley. Vine age 35-120 years old. Yield 3 tonnes per hectare. Fermented in 1 and 2 tonne open fermenters. Extended maceration was employed to enable good tannin development so the wine is soft and approachable early. Matured for 16 months in a mix of 40% new oak and 60% 2- and 3-year-old oak hogshead barrels (90% French, 10% American). Deep purple in colour, with layers of violets and cloves on the nose plus hints of mulberry and dark chocolate. Purity of dark fruits and cut plums on the palate with firm, savoury tannins, impressive depth and harmony.

Product Description

Ripe liqueur cherries on the nose compete for attention with vanilla, mocha and coffee aromas, while the palate is full of sweet berry fruit flavour and a soft, luscious finish that seems to persist for an age. Classic Barossa.
