Macerated red fruits and musk from Grenache, structure and longevity via Shiraz, Mouvèdre's gamey notes and minerality.
The warm maritime-influenced climate and red-brown loamy soils produce rich dark fruit characters and supple tannins in their exemplary red wines.
2017 did not see the drought conditions that were seen across Australia in recent years so crops were plentiful but the dry conditions at the end of summer lead to good quality fruit too.
A blend of 40% Grenache, 33% Shiraz and 27% Mourvèdre from Southern McLaren Vale, where the hills run down to the ocean. Fermented on skins in a combination of open and closed fermenters and matured in French oak for 6 months.
