Winery Notes:
The wines from 2015 show much promise, however some late growing season heat and rain episodes ensured that it was not without some nervous moments for the winemakers along the way. A certain amount of nerve was required, but mother nature came to the party in the end and mild perfect conditions late in the season ensured we made it home really happy with the vintage.

Inviting red fruit aromas of fresh cherries, red currants and raspberries combine with some blue fruit notes upfront before a hint of stony minerality and subtle notes of pepper spice, lavender and garrigue herb emerge from behind.

Vibrant red berry and raspberry fruit show early on the palate providing a pillowy, velvet like feel to the wine early on. This fruity opening envelopes a firm Mataro core driving down the middle. Some white pepper spice provides an additional layer of interest and a super fine tannin presence provides some balance, containment and focus to the fruit.

Winemaking Notes:
This blend of Grenache (52%), Mourvedre (24%) and Shiraz (24%) is an homage to the great wines of the Southern Rhone but with a very Barossan accent. These three classic red wine varieties are blended to showcase the unique qualities of each whilst ensuring balance, purity of fruit and the utmost drinkability.
