Ratings
4/ ‘First you smell, then taste, a wine that shows McLaren Vale doesn't have the field all on its own. It has the range of flavours that are typical, and superfine, but persistent and slightly savoury, tannins.’ / James Halliday
Vineyard Notes
Excellent budburst was followed by a beautifully warm November with great flowering and fruit set. Summer was quite mild with just a few hot days in December then cool, dry conditions. The warmer March weather saw the reds ripen beautifully and they were harvested under clear, sunny skies with ripe, concentrated flavours and excellent fine-grained powdery tannins.
