Vineyard: The vines grow strong and robust in the heartland of South AustraliaÕs vineyard regions. Bright, warm summers and deep sandy loam over limestone soils ensures they flourish to produce intensely flavoured, perfectly ripened grapes.
Winemaking: Carefully selected parcels of Shiraz, Grenache and Malbec were picked in the cool light of a new dawn when perfectly ripe, the grapes were crushed and destemmed prior to fermentation under temperature controlled conditions to preserve their vibrant colours and flavours. Each base wine was assessed and then unified with the skill of a true artisan to create a luscious berry driven palate that intriguing and truly indulgent. A heady blend that sings with vibrancy and finishes with a dark, earthy swoon.
