Vintage Conditions

Winter and Spring rainfall was well above average, creating an excellent start to the season.

A heat spike in November caused 'shatter' during flowering in the Barossa, affecting several red varieties and reducing potential yields.

Summer temperatures were warm but not extreme, allowing fruit to ripen evenly. Conditions leading up to harvest couldn't have been better and as a result the quality of the wines for 2010 have been exceptional.

This wine is matured in a combination of French and American oak.

Colour

Rich dark red in colour with a dark purple rim.

Nose

The nose shows rich concentrated red and blue fruits, dark chocolate and rich mocha notes with hints of some cedary oak.
