Acid: 6.8 g/L
PH: 3.48

Tasting Notes: COLOUR: Deep crimson.
NOSE: Lifted dark fruits of mulberry, blueberry, blackberry and satsuma plum combine with undertones of dark chocolate and mocha oak to create a wine of complexity and interest.

Vineyard Notes: 43% McLaren Vale - 37% Clare Valley - 20% Barossa Valley

Vintage Conditions:
Winter rainfall was above average, followed by a warm and very dry growing season. Thankfully, full soil moisture profiles resulted in lush, healthy canopies that saw the vines through to an early, condensed harvest. Excellent red wines showing depth of flavour and deep,vibrant colours.
Winemaker Notes: Batches of fruit from each vineyard were fermented separately in small open-top fermenters for 7 to 10 days, allowing optimum extraction of colour, flavour and tannin. Pumping over and plunging were utilised to work the cap, and build structure and length. Some batches were pressed off skins to complete fermentation in barrel, building mid-palate texture, while others remained on skins until dryness, creating wines with great length, persistence of flavour and tannin finesse. After 20 months oak maturation, each batch was carefully assessed before blending, to create a truly synergistic wine that brings together the finest attributes of Shiraz from each viticultural region.

Maturation:
Matured in fine seasoned and new French and American oak barrels to incorporate further layers of complexity.
Food Pairing: Argentinian barbecued T-bone with chimichurri sauce and crispy potatoes, or slow-braised saltbush lamb with plums, ginger and star anise.

Peak Drinking:
A wine that will develop with age, softening and mellowing to reward fifteen years or more of careful cellaring.
