Blackcurrant, baked cherry pie, smokey oak, milk chocolate and spice aromas leave a lasting impression. The palate is tight, but unfurls to show cherry, plum and milk chocolate, before darker tones of blackberry, plum and a subtle clove. Dusty tannins hold up a wonderfully balanced wine.
Alcohol: 14.5% vol.

A near equal split of Grenache and Shiraz fruit sourced from our own old-vine single site LOOM vineyard in McLaren Vale. Fermentation took place on skins in 2 tonne fermenters with two pump-overs daily until dry. The wine was then transferred to a mix of French and American oak, of which 30% was new, to build complexity, before blending and bottling.
