Fruit was sourced from both Corryton Burge’s and grower vineyards across southern and central Barossa. Fifty percent of the wine was aged in oak for 10 months, and the other half aged for a period of 18 months. Predominately American oak barrels were used along with about 30% French oak. Only a small percentage of new oak is used in this blend to ensure the vibrancy of the fruit is retained.
Dense inky black in colour with a deep dark red black hue. Heady dark plum, liquorice and blackberry scents fill the nostrils with some vanillin oak and spicy mocha notes also chiming in. Bold, rich and opulently textured the full bodied palate is awash with plush dark plum, blackberry and liquorice fruits which oversee a vanillin oak, scorched earth and spicy mocha back drop. Excellent depth with velvet smooth tannins and a long sumptuous conclusion. Great value.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Alc. 14.5%
