The Brief
How's it taste?
The wine is restrained and savoury upon opening, but with air and a moment of composure black cherry, blood plum, mulberry and violet aromas escape, leading a palate of dark fruit with a sanguine edge. It's plush, svelte, tight and long, with ample earthy and persistent tannins that despite the name do not overpower, but support a dense core of dark fruit. - Stephen Pannell
How was it made?
A blend of 40% Malbec, 33% Shiraz, 13% Tinta Cao and 11% Touriga. Both vineyards are at the end of Amery Road, McLaren Vale with the the Malbec coming from our neighbour and the balance from Koomilya.This is a wine that was built slowly. The Shiraz was picked on 14th February at 13.2 baume, the Malbec on 19th February at 12.7 baume and the Iberian varieties on 2nd March at 14 Baume. The Shiraz spent 19 days on skins and the Malbec11 days on skins, fermented separately in open-top fermenters. The Iberians were cofermented, spending 11 days on skins. The Malbec completed malolactic conversion in barrel whilst the Shiraz and Iberians completed malo in tank. The wine was kept in puncheons until November 2017, when it was blended and returned to puncheons for three months before bottling in February 2018. Alcohol 13.8%; pH 3.7 and TA 5.9g/L.
