About This Wine

Sourced from 2 McLaren Vale vineyards, one north facing bush vine vineyard, with richness and intensity, and the other a cooler Blewitt Springs site giving spice, lift and elegance. Both sites are hand picked and gently de-stemmed for a whole berry ferment in open vats. Plunged daily before basket pressing to old French oak barriques for 11 months elevage.

James Halliday – Shy and brooding, this is a bright and fragrant expression of Mataro. A gently complex nose of clove, cardamom and fennel seeds, Provencal herbs, and blue berry fruit. On the palate, a compact core of blue tinged fruit subtly supported by creamy oak, and carried by a ferruginous driving tannin structure which carries the fruit through the mouth.
