Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Bright fruits of plum, blueberries and red currants.

Flavours and Palate

This traditional Australian blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon is medium bodied with fine velvety tannins length and depth of flavour. Subtle oak brings depth of flavour to the dark berry fruits of mulberry, plums and hints of mint.

Viticulture

Viticulture

Above average winter rains ahead of a dry and warmer than average summer resulted in solid vintage conditions for Langhorne Creek. Winter rainfall was above average, leading to a number of floods through the older floodplain vineyards. Spring rainfall was around average, while Summer rainfall was relatively low keeping disease pressure under control. Temperatures were higher than average, with a number of short heatwaves across South Australia, but Langhorne Creek vines suffered only a little, receiving welcome relief thanks to the reliable cooling southerly breezes most evenings during the summer and autumn ripening periods. Langhorne Creek red harvesting commenced in earnest in early March. Overall an excellent vintage for wine quality; the wines are more fruit focused than floral, with excellent tannins structure and palate length.
