Deep crimson purple in colour, this wine shows intense youthful aromas of dark, ripe cherries, Christmas pudding, Indian spice and dark chocolate. The palate is rich and ripe and embodies a classic South Australian Shiraz, with layers of ripe blackberries and Christmas cake, surrounded by soft, juicy, ripe tannins.

Summer was dry and warm leading up to Christmas,
resulting in a vintage that was two weeks earlier than average.
These conditions meant that the vines were able to ripen the
grapes seamlessly, producing an abundance of flavour. Warm
temperatures at the onset of fermentation, and also 3 – 5 days
post fermentation has helped extract soft fleshy tannins and
build solid wine structure.
