Garnet red with purple hues. A complex nose of dark cherry and blackberry aromas with a hint of forest floor and spice. Vibrant dark cherry and blackberry with a hint of ‘wombat rolled in all spice’ balanced with an even, textural palate with soft, supple tannins.
North of Seppeltsfield in the west of the Barossa – 285m above sea level on clay over limestone. Matthew and Jono’s vineyard is to the north of Kalimna in the north of the Barossa – 312m above sea level on red clay with sand and ironstone.
The Barossa Valley experienced mild conditions of generally below-average temperatures for the entire growing season, making for an elegant and classic vintage boasting the best acidities in many years. Good rainfall made for close-to-average crops, a welcome relief after two tiny drought harvests. Extended and unhurried picking proved to be a blessing.
Pairs well with rump steak, mushroom sauce, chips and salad
