Bar­rossa Val­ley, Langhorne Creek, McLaren Vale, Up­per Ade­laide: win­ter rain­fall was lower than the long-term av­er­age for most parts of South Aus­tralia. The mild day­time tem­per­a­tures and cool evenings across most of the ripen­ing pe­riod, al­lowed for im­pres­sive fla­vor de­vel­op­ment. Deep red robe with a crim­son rim and a nose of rasp­berry, vanilla and co­coa. The palate opens to an ex­plo­sion of fruit. Al­though it's rather young, the vin­tage shows great aging po­ten­tial. Char­ac­ter­ized by pro­nounced chewy tan­nins and a lively acid­ity that bears the mark of 12 months of aging in oak casks. Pair with grilled meat and red meat. 13.50€
