Deep ruby red colour with intense dark cherry and plum aromatics that are complimented with complex dried herb and spice aromatics. On the palate a fleshy black-fruit core is surrounded by a layered line of textural savoury tannins.
This wine is a blend of two blocks of Tempranillo grown in the Light Pass sub-region of the Barossa Valley, which is classic red soil over limestone, and sits high on the eastern edge of the Valley.
The fruit was handpicked, destemmed and fermented in a mix of small fermenters, both stainless steel and oak. Extended skin contact pre and post fermentation together with daily plunging was utilised to assist in the development of tannin structure, brooding fruit characters and length of palate.
