Wine Description

Dark inky in colour this wine bursts out of the glass with ripe berry compote, underpinned by lifted violets and subtle dried herb aromas. The palate is modern, fresh and lively displaying a rich mid-palate complexity. From an outstanding Barossa vintage, the wine is approachable now but will mature well for many more years.

Winemaking

The basis of this wine comes from the Marschall Family vineyards, located in the Tanunda and Ebenezer districts of the Barossa Valley. The Tanunda vineyard grown on a sandy soil profile typically provides a focused aromatic lift while the rich iron clad soils of Ebenezer add a dense fruit core and structure to the final wine.

A variety of fermentation techniques were utilized, but all involved extended skin contact ranging from 15 to 25 days. A cold soak period of up 7 days occurred before a natural warming to start the fermentation. Upon completion the ferments were pressed to a mix of new and seasoned oak hogsheads, for malolatic fermentation and maturation. Matured in barrel with minimal intervention for 18 months, then naturally clarified, and bottled with minimal filtration.
