This wine uses two vineyards across the McLaren Vale district. Grapes are allowed to ripen fully before open fermentation with longer extraction, including use of cold soak maceration. 

After blending this wine is bottled and allowed to mature in bottle until release. 

Colour: Dark cherry red with purple and brick red hue. 

Nose: Blueberry fruits with mocha, malt dark liquorice & black pepper. Spiciness and some new leather add interest along with cedar oak complexity. 

Palate: Full bodied, firm tannin with dark plum and mulberry palate with a hint of plum, vanilla and cedar. Crisp acidity with a well-balanced palate with light cola like complexity.

Potential: This vintage has produced rich and savoury, textured wines that have long term cellaring potential. Sealed under DIAM5 cork. Ideally decant on opening and allow to breathe for a hour or two. 

Vintage: The 2016 vintage was a classic early ripening vintage for McLaren Vale with robust yet elegant characters.
