Dense midnight black core with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Nosing offers up lifted aromatics of dark plum, black cherry and liquorice with some vanillin cedar, smoked meat and peppered clove notes also evident. Mid weighted generous dark plum, black cherry and liquorice fruits carry plenty of flesh across the palate. Scorched earth, clove and peppered meat elements lie underneath. Nicely integrated fine grained tannins concluding ripe and savoury.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.

Other Reviews….
Fruit from Kaurna Country, off a Blewitt Springs site, and as with its grenache sibling, this is aged in used French oak (barriques and hogsheads); however, this spends 16 months in barrel. An outrageously vibrant dark purple/red hue, so enticing; while there’s a whiff of (diesel-like) reduction, the palate is awash with blueberries, dark plums, loads of spices and umami accents of soy sauce. Full-bodied, rich and ripe with bolshie tannins leaving a firm finish, fresh and a little drying, in a good way. Drink by 2033.
