A blend of Barossa Valley (80%) and Eden Valley (20%) fruit, the Barossa Valley contributes plushness and concentration whilst the Eden Valley component brings elegance and structure to the blend. The average age of vines is 50 years old and maturation takes place in a mixture of new (20%) and seasoned French oak for a period of 20 months.
Superb density of colour featuring an impenetrable inky black core with an equally deep black dark red hue. Wafting from the glass are heady scents of ripe dark plum, liquorice and blackberry which intermingle with vanillin oak, fennel, a whiff of mocha and spice. Dense, concentrated and super rich with a plump feel, the palate is drenched in a tidal wave of lavish dark plum, blackberry, blueberry and liquorice fruits which engulf every corner of the mouth. Vanillin oak, scorched earth, fennel, subtle dark chocolate and light pepper nuances flow onto the back half. Velvet smooth tannins concluding long and opulent.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.
