Garnet in colour this modern Barossa wine bounces out of the glass with ripe blueberry and red licorice aromas. The palate is fresh, juicy and alive with dark berried fruits, finishing with a textured savoury edge. Delicious drinking now but will mature well for the medium term.
Primarily from the Marschall vineyards, located in the Tanunda and Ebenezer districts of the Barossa Valley. The Tanunda vineyard grown on a sandy soil profile typically provides a focussed aromatic lift while the rich iron clad soils of Ebenezer add a dense fruit core and structure to the final wine.
A variety of fermentation techniques were utilised, but all involved extended skin contact ranging from 11 to 22 days. A cold soak period of up to 7 days occurred before a natural warming to start the fermentation.
