Overview

Classic McLaren Vale blue fruited accents, with blueberry and plum reduction. Quite high toned and vibrant, yet the palate is quite broad and loose knit, providing a soft and cuddly fruit expression. Tannins start early and are also quite broad and loose knit, making the wine quite accessible in its youth. Oak is well woven in the wine providing notes of pie crust, vanilla bean, and white chocolate. The palate tightens through the finish showing notes of white pepper and exotic spice. The palate runs very long creating a lovely mother watering quality.

Aging

Aged for 18 months in 9% new French oak hogsheads and the remainder in two to seven year old American and French oak.

Fermentation

Crushed into and fermented in three to ten ton open top fermenters with regular pump overs (three daily over peak fermentation) to extract color, flavor and tannins. Following an average of 12 days of maceration, the free run was drained to tank and the skins pressed to the same tank. After 24 hours the wine was racked to barrel, where malolactic fermentation took place. Minimal fining and filtration is used.
