Sebastiano Brini arrived in Australia in 1950, speaking no English, with a suitcase and five pounds to his name. Within three years, he had saved enough money to buy a soldier settlement in Blewitt Springs, a sub-region of McLaren Vale. Two thirds of the property was dedicated to dairy cattle, whilst the final third was planted out to Shiraz vines. Located in close proximity to some of Clarendon Hills top vineyards, the site selected by the original owner may have been due to good fortune rather than science. The vineyard is planted at two hundred metres above sea level and one hundred fifty metres above the McLaren Vale valley floor. The cooler climate, due to the elevation, produces wines of force, elegance and concentration. In the past, fruit from the Brini vineyard was sold off to some of the districts' top producers such as Penfolds & d'Arenberg. Today the Brini vineyard is managed by one of Sebastiano’s sons, Marcello, after the recent passing of his brother John.
Sleek and texturally polished with rich plush fruit glowing throughout the long expansive finish.
Sourced from vines aged between 55 to 75 years old the wine was matured in French oak barrels, 35% new, for a period of 20 months. Magnificent colour saturation featuring an inky black core with a very deep dark red black hue. Intense blackberry dark plum and liquorice aromas intermingle with notions of dark chocolate, vanillin cedar, earth and hints of spicy mocha. Rich and dense yet supple and refined the palate is layered with plush ripe blackberry, liquorice and dark plum fruit which are carried by gently toasted vanillin cedar, subtle dark chocolate and spicy pepper elements on the lavish finish. Silky smooth, seamlessly integrated tannins and an impressively long aftertaste that goes on and on.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
