    • Background

      This wine has long been a favourite of Somerled clients and sits just in between our pinot noir and shiraz.

    • Vineyard Notes

      Charleston, Adelaide Hills vineyard owned by Kim Anderson. Temp fruit comes from a high breezy ridge bringing the grapes to perfect, even ripening. This was an excellent quality but low yield vintage all round.

    • Winemaking

      24 months in well-matured French oak barrels. Underwent a rack and return around half a dozen times over that period, giving the wine excellent structure, roundness, complexity and secondary aroma.

    • Tasting Notes

      Medium to full bodied wine with great warmth and roundness. Savoury with very enticing hints of blackcurrant.

    • Style

      European mid weight.

    • Colour

      Dark with ruby tints.

    • Bouquet

      Savoury with blackcurrant elements.

    • Palate

      Warm, round and savoury.

    • Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential
    • Food Matches

      Homemade pasta dripping with parmesan and great olive oil.
