Dark red/garnet with complex aromatics of blueberry fruit, aniseed with youthful violet / floral notes.
A fresh and enticing palate featuring red cherry fruits, blueberry tart and a long lingering finish.
Oak flavours are background highlighting the varietal Shiraz characters but bringing together a fine granular tannin structure that will allow the wine to develop slowly over time.
Deep red colour as is the norm with the wines from the Gaelic Cemetery Vineyard. This wine possesses intense blackcurrant / redcurrant and mulberry-like aromas along with some subtle cedary notes.
The palate is warm, firm and structured, but retains the elegance that we expect to see in Cabernet based wines from Clare.
It will take several years in the cellar to reveal its undoubted potential. Very good cellaring proposition. Try with grilled lamb backstraps.
Deep red in colour, the wine displays ripe satsuma plum and blackcurrant, a little chocolate and a hint of cedary French oak.
The palate is quite rich but retains a degree of elegance with its balanced acidity. It also has a good depth of juicy, fleshy dark berry fruit.
A really attractive Clare red blend which will repay medium term cellaring.
This wine comes from three different blocks on the vineyard and the intention is to make a wine in the modern Australian Riesling style – crisp, dry and fresh.
It has typical Clare Valley Riesling citrus characters of lemon and lime.
