Variety: Shiraz
100%: Organic | Biodynamic
Region: McLaren Vale
Colour: Deep crimson red with purple hues
Aroma: A powerful yet graceful nose, with exceptional fruit characters and cinnamon spice from the French oak
Palate: Full bodied wine with dark fruit characters and hints of cocoa. Mid palate generosity showing old vine fruit concentration and fine grain tannins with a touch of French oak.
Cellaring:

This wine can be enjoyed young, however, careful cellaring for 10-30 years will be rewarded.

Vintage:

2016 was a very strong year in McLaren Vale. After 6 months without rain, we had 40mm in the first week of February. This slowed down the baumes and allowed the acidity to catch up, therefore giving the fruit fantastic flavour equilibrium. Berry numbers were high due to an even veraison, which lead to the highest quality crops and tonnages this millennium.

Alcohol: 14.0%
Winemaker: Richard Freebairn
