This carries the vineyard trait of eucalypt seen in the previous St Mary's 2013 wines reviewed: Shiraz and Pinot Noir.
Fermented in an open vat, hand plunged and housed in French oak, this is a very likeable wine. Everything is in its place. Nothing jumps out to intrude and the fruit moves with grace. Give it some air and you'll be rewarded further more.
Blackberry, cassis, and choc spearmint tap away with dry savoury herbs sliding in to finish. Nice touch. Nice wine.
Medium to long term cellaring.
Region: Limestone Coast
