95 Points James Halliday Wine Companion
“A classic Barossa vintage. Perfumed dark cherry musky plum aromas with underlying savoury oak complexity. An elegantly styled wine with inky rich persistent dark fruits, grilled nut, vanilla oak notes, fine slinky textures and attractive mineral length.” Andrew Caillard MW

In open stainless-steel vats. Partial whole bunch fermentation with regular pumping over and pigeage to optimise colour and flavour without over-extraction.
