Wild fermented with partial whole bunch inclusion. Totally opaque black dark purple colour with a bright dark purple red hue. Aromas of blueberry, red liquorice and plum are interwoven with dried herbs and spicy earth. Juicy blueberry, liquorice and dark plum fruits drive the mid weighted palate that shows good richness. Fresh finish with polished tannins and some dried herb and spicy earth characters lingering through the succulent blue fruited aftertaste.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.

Other Reviews…..
I don’t know, but I reckon I’m liking 2022 in the Barossa over 2021. Kind of less overt in fruitiness.
Blue fruit, spice, aniseed, black olive. Medium-bodied, fleshy and juicy in red and black fruit, plenty of spice, dried herbs, cool acidity, a pleasing chewiness to tannin, and a gently saline and savoury finish of fine length. Has energy and interest, and drinks so well. Really like this. Drink 2023-2028+
