Blackbilly wine is produced using the famous vineyards of McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Zone known for wines of richness and diversity. Using modern and traditional winemaking techniques we craft wines of exceptional value and flavour for drinking and enjoyment.
Colour: Medium straw with a slight green hues
Nose: White peach, lemon curd with a waxy macadamia nut note. Light buttery complexity and some funky aromatics from the winemaking techniques. Should develop a flinty note with cellaring.
Palate: Clean, crisp acid with stone fruit and lemon zest/pith/curd. Some light phenolic lift from the oak adds interest and appeal. Needs a little time to meld together.
Potential: Drink now but short term cellaring (to 5 years) will add further complexity and varietal definition.
Vintage: 2018 was cooler as a result of the maritime influence of the vineyard. This resulted in a late harvest but one with quality wines being made.
Delivery exclusion: NT, Dry Zones & International
