VINEYARD:  Malakoff, Landsborough (Pyrenees) Victoria

 

WINEMAKING:  A single vineyard wine crafted from 100% ‘Best’s Old Block’ clone fruit. Hand-picked in late March and early April, the fruit was fermented in a three small batches to enhance character and complexity. The ferments included 74% whole bunches and 26% destemmed whole berries. The wine was matured in a mixture of new (17%) and older French oak barriques for 12 months before being bottled without filtration.

 

TASTING NOTE:  Deep violet in colour, this wine delivers perfumed aromas of dark berries, tobacco, violets, & white pepper. On the palate there are juicy plums, blackberry bramble, pepper spice, liquorice and some fine tannic grip to give the wine drive and focus.

  • 'It leads with savouriness but the push of berried fruit is substantial. We’re in lovely territory here. It’s all sweet Aussie bush spice, choc-coffee, ripe plum and cherry, with aromatic herb and woodsmoke notes adding nuance to the highlights. Tannin assertive but integrated; length is sound. It’s drinking well now but its best is ahead.'
