    Winemaker's Notes:

    Dark with a slight purple tinge. The nose opens with raspberry, blueberry and plum stone with a layer of graphite and rose water adding interest and elegance. The palate is darker with cherry and juicy plum opening before dark chocolate, mocha and blackberry emerge. The palate is mouth filling yet focused with an earthy character running throughout and building to a spicy finish that lingers. Powdery mineral tannins provide structure with little oak influence evident. Generous enough to drink on release this wine will age for up to ten years in a cellar and will benefit from decanting.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The first shiraz grenache blends were made by d'Arry Osborn 50 years ago, and have since been embedded in the history of McLaren Vale. The healthy colour of this vintage is a good start, as is the distinctly fragrant bouquet with its amalgam of spice, leather and red and black fruits. The palate has greater power than many previous vintages at the same stage of development. The wine will flourish in bottle, revealing ever more as it ages over this decade.
