Colour: Deep crimson with purple hues.
Aroma: A rich and intense aroma of ripe Satsuma plum, blueberries and hints of cola mingling with fine milk chocolate, cedar and sweet spice.
Palate: Quite a mouthful of sweet, juicy fruit but balance wonderfully with briary and sweet spice. A full bodied wine showing great complexity with hints of cedar and smokey notes which, in combination, flows through to the lengthy and youthfully austere finish.
Cellaring: 2012 – 2027
The Barossa experienced its best rainfall in five years during the winter and spring of 2010 and provided good soil moisture for the onset of the growing season. Late spring was fairly mild with some moderately warm days, resulting in an early budburst. Warm and mild weather ensued for the remainder of the growing season so canopies remained very healthy and ripening accelerated for an early vintage. The onset of cool nights in mid-March slowed the final harvest for some later varieties and vineyards. In summary, the 2011 wines are proving that this has been an exceptional year for the Barossa.
