Selected from a single block high on the estate peak, where the soils are shallow and exposure to sunlight is long, the Beast embodies all the classic Barossa attributes of power, concentration, richness and structure. Maturation took place in French oak (60% new and 40% seasoned) for a period of 22 months.
Magnificent colour density featuring a saturated inky black heart and an equally deep black dark red hue. Intense blackberry and liquorice scents engulf the olfactory senses followed by some dark plum, vanillin cedar, fennel and pepper notes. Full bodied the palate is awash with a concentrate of blackberry, liquorice and dark plum fruits which overlay a spicy vanillin cedar, earthy dark chocolate, fennel and blackpepper back drop. Firmly structured with an opulent feel it has ripe yet muscular tannins and bright underlying acidity. Finishes fresh, seductive and powerful.
Cellar 10-15 years.
