SIZE
With rich, deep red with purple magenta hues, this wine has intense, lifted aromas of blackcurrant, cassis and dark plum, with complexing notes of black spice, earthy wild herbs, violet and sweet anise.

On the palate, this wine has plush, rich fruit, with tarry, dark berry flavours and hints of bittersweet chocolate and tobacco leaf and is backed by a definitive structural line of long, fine tannins.

The palate is also smooth and even, with evident yet subtle French oak that supports without dominating. The finish leaves the mouth watering with lingering dark fruit.

methodSelected premium parcels of Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Light Pass Shiraz sourced and grown by Kurtz Family Vineyards. The vines received minimal or no irrigation and were pruned for low yields to provide vine balance, maximum fruit quality and varietal characteristics. Vine growth was slow yet healthy, after a long, wet winter. Spring and early summer were cool, and post-veraison temperatures were moderate, with short bursts of heat and well-timed rain. An Indian summer allowed consistent ripening, with cool late-March nights extending vintage. Varieties were fermented separately on skins for up to 10 days in small, open fermenters and gently hand-plunged to optimise colour, flavour and tannin extraction. After pressing, the wines were matured in seasoned French oak hogsheads for 30 months prior to blending and bottling.
noseIntense, lifted aromas of blackcurrant, cassis and dark mulberry with complexing notes of black spice, wild herbs, violet and fennel seed.
