Purple with a darkened core
An initial impact of high-toned dark notes - a Shiraz tarriness, black-bean sauce. Following, a tussle between the spice jar's anise and ginger and the blender's coffee-grind and mocha. Minutes later, without as much as the provocation of a swirl of the glass, the aromatic ascent of pan scrapings, a rich jus and smokey meats.
Bright. Volume, generous in every sense. A purple fruit spectrum unfolds - a fresh assortment of plums and dark berries - many varieties of both. What may appear to be a soft, smooth Haighs Chocolate-like mouth-coating to some is a roasted eggplant texturecreaminess to others! Tannins - soft and even, texture - almost velvetysuede. Yet, still tarry!
Above-average winter and early spring rainfall offered the vines in South Australia healthy soil moisture profiles for the growing season. A warm and wet start to the spring season in McLaren Vale brought an early start to the season. A significant hail storm and high wind activity caused poor set during the flowering period. 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 mid-February with a significant rainfall event producing a slow and even ripening process and an extended harvest.
