Sourced from three different vineyards in the Eden Valley region with vines aged between 50 to 80 years old. Included in the fermentation process were up to 20% whole bunch clusters with maturation taking place in French oak hogsheads (50% new) for a period of 18 months.
Impenetrable pitch black in colour with a deep dark red black hue. The nose provides both intensity and complexity with ripe dark plum and liquorice scents leading the charge. Complimenting the fruit are smoky vanillin cedar, fennel, meaty notes, scorched earth and peppered herbs. Rich, powerful and expansive the palate features seductive dark plum, liquorice and to a lesser extent ripe blueberry fruits over smoky cedar, fennel, meaty earth like characters and spicy pepper. Full in body with a refined yet opulent texture it possesses tremendous depth and silky smooth tannins. Finishes very long and highly delicious.
Drink over the next 8-10 years.
Alc. 14.5%

Other Reviews….
This is so very complex and fragrant with such impressive Eden Valley spice and blueberry fruit, as well as dark-stone nuances. The blueberry flavors are so pure and essence-like and silky tannins carry the flavors so deep and vivid. Seamless. Drink over the next fifteen years.
