Finally, the youngest of the vineyards, proving age is not everything, with vines from five to 19 years of age. Located in the Seppeltsfield sub-region of the Barossa Valley. Rows have an east-west orientation, and the vineyard a north-easterly aspect. Elevation is 250 metres. The soil is red-brown earth over stony clay. It gives the wines incredibly intense aromatics.
Purples and reds. This opens with chocolate and raisins. It is plush, cuddly, full-flavoured and even cushiony while already exhibiting some serious complexity. Black fruits, spices, liquorice. Chewy tannins, but they and the oak and the acidity and the fruit are all in sync. Balance is immaculate with great length. Stunning, love this and my pick of the range.
