Epsilon is the project of Aaron and Julie Southern (Julie is a member of the Kalleske clan) who own vineyards in the Northern part of Barossa. As the familiar story goes with so many growers they sold off their fruit to larger wineries until a chance meeting with the Massena boys Dan Standish and Jaysen Collins. Under their guidance they convinced them to start up their own brand in 2004 and build a winery on the property. Maturation takes place for approximately 12 months in seasoned French oak hogsheads with only the best batches making the final blend.

Magnificent colour featuring an impenetrable inky black heart along with a very deep black dark purple hue. The nose is flooded with scents of spicy dark plum and liquorice which intermingle with lightly smoked vanillin cedar, fennel, graphite and blackpepper. Rich, concentrated and plush the palate is soaked in succulent dark plum, blackberry and liquorice fruits which overlay a smoky vanillin cedar, fennel, graphite and blackpepper back drop. Energetic and fresh with polished yet sturdy tannins. Amply powered it finishes long with lashings of ripe fruit.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Alc. 14.5%
