Much to intrigue here - a flash of baker's sourdough rises above; beneath - crackling, crispy duck skin and basting juices. Old-Garden fruits - rhubarb, quince and fig to the fore. New-Kitchen savouries, sesame oil and pinenut follow. Pencil shavings oak, stylishly legitimised by a classic graphiteironstone-metal blackness. Smokey, gunflint, shale descriptors abound - a reminder that there's more to Bin 389 than just crushed grapes!
A tasting-slurry of red-curranteggplantblack olive induce a darker, savoury flavour pool. A generous mid-palate embalmed by integrated plush and ripe tannins. The ferrics lurk - an iron-laden meatiness intriguingly verging towards a knife-sharpening stone primed with olive oil.
Above-average winter and early spring rainfall offered the vines in South Australia healthy soil moisture profiles for the growing season. Late spring and summer were dry and warm with significant heat records being set. Warm weather prevailed during summer and throughout veraison, allowing grapes to develop evenly and with good intensity. These warm conditions came to an abrupt halt in the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale in mid-February with significant rainfall allowing long slow ripening of the fruit in very good ripening conditions. Wrattonbully had a warm and generally dry ripening end to the season allowing development of strong varietal flavours.
