57/30/7/6% shiraz/cabernet sauvignon/merlot/cabernet franc. Matured 18 months in (13% new) 71/29% French/American oak hogsheads. I love the transparency of the Barossa's cooler seasons, in such articulate detail here that all 4 varieties are clearly visible in all their glory. Unashamedly medium bodied, refreshing and enticing, yet in no way underpowered, simplistic or short lived. Crunchy berry fruits, fine-ground tannins and vibrant acidity unite to marvellous effect and outstanding line and length. It takes some skill, dexterity and humility in the winery to allow fruit of such elegance to really sing. A classic Barossa blend with a long future before it. Drink by 2037.

This cooler vintage shuffles cabernet to the fore, with leafy redcurrants and red berries, as well as some first-wood tones. The palate is more supple and reflects the influence of shiraz with blackberry and plum flavors set amid quite fleshy texture. A blend of shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot. Barossa, all day.
Supple, soft red, luscious in red and black forest berry fruit characters, some mellow nougat like caress, a bit of milk chocolate and ribbons of fine, lacy tannin lending some form. Not much to add, it’s really pleasing to drink, warming, has personality layers and as a sense of ‘yum’. Drink 2021 - 2028.
