Deep black dark red colour with a dark red hue. Spicy dark plum and liquorice aromas infused with clove are followed by some smoked meat, subtle earth and peppered herb notes. The elegant mid weighted palate is laden with fleshy textured spicy dark plum and liquorice fruits which meld into a clove, smoked meat, earth and peppered dried herb back drop. Velvet smooth tannins with a refined supple peppered dried herb finish that has a savoury quality to it.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.

Other Reviews….
Deep yet transparent nose of plum, candied orange and wet earth. At once fleshy and elegant on the very focused palate, which has a wonderful delicacy. Long refined finish. From the Sugarloaf Creek Vineyard. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Hand picked, fermented in small open fermenters, 70% whole bunches. Basket pressed into small French oak barriques for 8 months, blended and placed into 150yo underground vats for 5 months. Comes fully formed into the world, combining black/blueberry fruits, sweet spice, baked earth and wood smoke. Warms on the palate, with a depth of fruit intensity and light savouriness. Tasted soon after bottling and already looking a winner. Drink by 2034.
