Wine Description
Deep ruby red colour with intense dark cherry, plum fruits and complex dried herbs. On the palate a fleshy black-fruit core is surrounded by a layered line of grainy and savoury tannins.

Winemaking
The Tempranillo is grown in the Light Pass sub-region of the Barossa Valley,
which is classic red soil over limestone, and sits high on the eastern edge of the Valley. Likely, the oldest planting of Tempranillo in the region, planted in 1999 and is managed with low-input sustainable viticultural practices.
The fruit was handpicked, destemmed and fermented in a mix of small
fermenters, both stainless steel and oak. Extended skin contact pre and post
fermentation together with daily hand plunging was utilised to assist in retaining fruit character and building tannin structure.
The ferments were pressed to a mix of new and seasoned 500 litres French oak vessels. Matured undisturbed for 30 months, then naturally clarified and bottled with minimal filtration.
