Located in Tanunda in the Barossa, Linke remains a 5th generation family owned producer. Their two vineyards - the "Stonewell Block" on the western side of the Barossa, and the "Dorrien" which is on the valley floor, consistently produce top notch fruit for renowned labels (including St Halletts and Langmeil). Since 2002, a portion of fruit has been reserved for the family's own label utilising vines that have an average age of 20 years old. Maturation is American oak, 90% used and 10% new.

An ultra rich, high octane monster.

Dense inky black in colour with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Soaring out of the glass with tremendous intensity are heady aniseed, black plum and black cherry scents which are trailed by vanillin oak, scorched earth and pepper notes. Thick, dense and extravagantly rich, the enormously sized palate is drenched in black plum, liquorice and black cherry fruits. Vanillin oak, scorched earth and pepper elements ensue. Showing pedal to the metal power it has velvet smooth tannins and finishes long and super lavish.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
Alc. 15.8%
