Still family owned and operated, this small Coonawarra vineyard has been evolving over the past 40+ years and now involves their daughter, Emma who has taken on the winemaking role whilst Doug is looking after the viticultural side of things. The Estate consists of 33 hectares of vines planted on the prized Coonawarra Terra Rosa soils. Established in 1972, the first vintage in 1975 was greeted with considerable enthusiasm.
Dense pitch black heart with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Elevated red to black currant, liquorice and ripe mulberry aromas are followed by vanillin cedar, subtle dusty earth, tobacco and a faint whiff of bay leaf. A wave of rich red to black currant flood the medium to full bodied palate with notions of liquorice, subtle dark chocolate, vanillin cedar, earthy black olive, tobacco and bay leaf lining the back half. Showing ample power and depth is possesses a polished yet sturdy tannin structure. Finishes long, refined and spicy.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.
