Tasting Note

The base of this wine was grown on a vineyard near McLaren Flat township. The vineyard sits on Pirramimma Sandstone that was deposited between 2.6 million to 10,000 years ago. The vineyards are later ripening than those sitting in the Willunga foothills by nearly a full two weeks, but consistently provide floral aromatics with good intensity of fruit.

This wine has a lovely vibrant aroma of red and dark fruits with a background of violets and floral notes. The palate has an elegant compote of fresh berry fruits with aromatic spices and soft tannins that continue with gorgeous mouthfeel.
