Region: Heathcote, VIC
Dark and deep brick red, a riot of perfume encompassing ripe wild blackberries, baked red earth and dry sage herb, smoked meats/charcuterie, bergamot tea and black olive create a sense of excitement. Complex, dense weighted palate with intense energy. Lifted perfumes of black olive tapenade, smoked meats with compounded black fruits add to the ultra fine savoury tannin from the 90% whole bunch used is a feature. Long, deep and complex with rich dark fruits, the ripeness of the vintage has still left the wine with freshness for a very long future ahead. - Notes from the winemaker, Adam Foster.
