In the North Western section of the Barossa Valley, the red clay loam over marl (a friable earthly deposit consisting of clay and limestone) produces the highest quality red wines. These soils provide the perfect balance of nutrient availability and vine stress, producing wines with saturated colour and fruit intensity.
Ripe blueberries combine with some bright, confected red fruits with a slight floral lift. Grippy tannins provide the introduction & finish to the palate with expressive fruit filling the middle. Expect great fruit intensity and palate weight throughout a lengthy finish.
