Expert Reviews

Full red-purple; the primary and mlf was completed and the wine matured for 20 months in one-year-old American oak. The result is an even stronger expression of McLaren Vale terroir, with layers of black fruits, bitter chocolate and exemplary tannins. This is all about the quality of the grapes. Rating 93 - Drink by 2025 James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (21/DEC/2012)
