- The Wine
The power and concentration of this vintage is the style we ultimately set out to achieve...Lush but restrained.
- Black with red hues.
- A combination of dark red and black fruits, plums and raspberry conserve.
- The front palate is rich and intense. With spicy red fruits from the Shiraz combined with licorice and cigar box notes from the Cabernet and a soft round finish from the Merlot makes this wine a pleasure to drink.
- All meats.
- Now - 2014
- Vintage Notes
The 2008 vintage continues a remarkably strong decade of harvests in Mclaren Vale, joining 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2006. An almost perfect growing season paved the way for a remarkably strong vintage where all the strongest parcels of fruit were picked in ideal conditions prior to the onset of a record heatwave in March.
