Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

The nose shows rich concentrated red and blue fruits, dark chocolate with hints of spice.

Flavours and Palate

" The palate is rich and plush with good structure. There is a concentrated layer of red and blue berry fruit and oak which is balanced with the fine chalky tannins to give length and power while finishing soft and full of flavour.

96 Points Tyson Stelzer
93 points Ned Goodwin, 2021 Halliday Wine Companion

"62.1/37.8/0.1% cabernet sauvignon/shiraz/other, from Langhorne Creek/McLaren Vale/Clare/Barossa. Matured 12 months in seasoned and new oak barrels. Richard Mattner unites the big-gun regions of SA to celebrate the quintessential Aussie blend. It rejoices in all there is to love about the past, present and future of Australian winemaking. A deep core of blackcurrant and blackberry fruit stretches tall and long, upheld by a fine splay of intricate tannins and bright acidity. Outstanding line and unwavering persistence make for one of the best reds at this price on the shelves today." 96 Points

Viticulture

Viticulture

It was a challenging season with regular, but only light winter rainfall pre-empting a dry late-winter, spring and early summer period. However, the warm dry spring provided superb conditions for flowering and fruit set which was reflected in the good yields across the district. Summer brought cooler weather and some welcome rain at an ideal time. The reliable cooling ‘lake breezes’ provided a long cool ripening period. The mild conditions were ideal for early flavour and phenolic ripeness at lower Baume’s, leading to a generally steady harvest pattern. Early flavour-ripeness, coupled with the ideal weather, provided the opportunity to pick to style without the risk of over-ripe characters.
