    Winemaker's Notes:

    In 2008, cool and dry conditions during berry ripening encouraged the development of excellent avours and crisp acidity. The unexpected heat wave in March caused the most condensed harvest in McLaren Vale's history. Our cooler weather in the northern foothills of Blewitt Springs offset much of the heat – resulting in tiny, intensely-flavored berries and concentrated wines with rm structure and vibrant aromatics.

    This wine has feisty yet adult aromas of white pepper, and smells of red Australian earth in the summer. The blackberry and mulberry fruits taste as if they've been gently stewed to a conserve, with whole berries remaining in the pulp. The finish is teasing and appetizing with savory dark green tannins and an elegant, refined attitude.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Fresh and cooked blackberry bouquet, with mocha and fruitcake spice aplenty; rich, warm and showing generosity and depth of fruit to conclude.

    This is a knockout red from a winery now US owned (luckily there are still many left in the McLaren Vale area that are small, Aussie-owned, and will be forever - GREAT place to visit with simply stunning wineries to visit and eat at)at a price that reflects quality for the dollar. Great depth, excellent fruit with no aftertaste of sweaty horse collar, dirt and manure (being a bit sarcastic there!) and very easy to slip down with duck, lamb, good beef, strong cheeses or just under the pergola ruminating with nature - something we do a lot of here in the Central Coast of California and back home in Adelaide, Australia when I visit each year.

    First sampled this deep purple, ultra jammy gem at a wine expo held by Westchester Magazine in White Plains NY. It's a meaty red wine with complex finish and without question fairly priced at 19.99.
