The fruit which contributed came from three regions, those being Mitchelton Estate 71%, Heathcote 18% and the remainder from the Goulburn Valley.
At first look, the reddish hue depicts the earth from where this wine comes from. Dark fruits, plums and a vanilla influence from the French oak all contributed to a super smooth palate giving great length. A touch of pepper adding some welcome spice. The palate was very consistent from nose right through to the lip smacking finish.
A most enjoyable wine which was sipped on slowly. A blind eye was turned to the truckloads of sediment which caked the glass.
