Winemaker Jason Schwarz

The 2012 vintage in the Barossa was a ripper. We had ideal weather conditions were experienced in the lead up to harvest, with slightly cooler spring and early summer temperatures. Across the Barossa we saw small bunches and low yields and the Shiraz we received had great colour and flavour. There were several different vineyards that provided fruit for this wine, each parcel was vinified separately in small fermenters before it aged in seasoned oak barrels. We included 8% Mataro in this release, which provides added spice, a savoury edge and an added dimension to the wine.

Colour: Deep red/purple.

Bouquet: Deep, rich and dark fruits on the nose, including dark plum, blackberry, blackcurrant and a hint of blueberry. Barossa earth, rosemary, licorice and dark chocolate and the welljudged, seasoned oak is a seamless support act.

Palate: Plenty of rich Barossa fruit flavours on the palate with blueberry, blackberry, black-currant and plum. As the wine flows onto the mid-palate you’ll find hints of a Provencal herb mix (rosemary, oregano, thyme, sage), licorice, dark chocolate, violets and even some earthy/mineral flavours. There is a vibrant seam of acidity that flows through the wine, which combines with fine and chalky tannins to provide a lingering finish.

Alcohol: 14.5%
Production: 600 cases
