60% Barossa Valley, 40% Eden Valley grapes, open-fermented with submerged cap, matured for 15 months in new (33%) and used French hogsheads. Deeply colored; this is at once full-bodied and elegant, not a common marriage with young red wines with decades in front of them. The flavors are all black: blackberry, blackcurrant, black cherry, earth and licorice. The old vines have also provided ripe tannins, the whole theme resonated with oak a la Grange.
A ripe nose with the classic blackberry compote nose, as well as some more intriguing nuances such as blueberry skin, dried eucalyptus and dark chocolate. Full body, some really structured tannins, driven acidity and a chewy finish. Lots of fruit, but it remains tight and linear throughout. (NS)
