A deeply coloured wine with exuberant perfumes of ripe red and black berry fruits, with notes of spice from the oak ageing. Made in the style of an Amarone, it is concentrated and opulent on the palate, with great balance. It is elegant, velvety and supple
Deep garnet in the glass with an intense black cherry and vanilla bouquet. On the palate, it is full bodied, rich and creamy with smooth tannins. At 16% alcohol, it should really be a monster; in reality, it is fantastically balanced with a minerality which keeps it fresh and dangerously moreish.

The vibrant dark cherry fruit typifies the area that this wine is from in Padthaway, South Australia and is the backbone of this wine.Blackberry, plum and mocha are also evident, creating a palate that is rich and soft. This wine was matured in French oak for approximately 4 - 6 months before being filtered and blended for bottling. It is a wine that has been made to drink now but will cellar for around 5 years.
A ripe juicy Aglianico with perfumed black cherry, blackberry and olives on the nose. The palate is soft and fresh with a good balance between savoury, ripe tannins and dark ever so slightly bitter fruits.

The bouquet fills out with notes of vanilla, spices and mocha, characteristic of French oak.This is a dense, complex wine, with a good tannin structure.
