Vineyard Notes
Winter rains commenced a great growing season. Early temperatures in October and December were well above average…enhancing rapid development…this suited the late ripening Mataro (Mouvedre). March was mild ad cool. Mild dry ripening conditions later combined with low yields led to good varietal expression.
Tasting Notes
A beautiful Barossa blend with interesting food friendly notes now developed. The color is quite dark, seductive earth and rosemary characters lift from the glass. The palate is generous and charming with sweet chocolate, stewed plums and pepper spice yet finishes gently dry and harmoniously.
