Region Barossa Vineyard : Ebenezer

Winemaker Tim Smith

Vintage 2006

Tasting Notes The dark, brooding regional characters of plum and licorice are to the fore of this wine. The palate is focused and linear, with dark bitter chocolate notes and an elegant long persistent finish. We recommend cellaring for 10 years.

Winemaking The grapes were destalked (separating berries from the bunch) and placed uncrushed into small stainless steel open fermenters. A cultured yeast was used to start the fermentation and the tanks were hand plunged spending 7 days on skins at 28° C.
Further maturation in a mixture of French and American Oak for 15 months has resulted in a wine of great structure and finesse.
