VINEYARD REGION: Barossa



VINTAGE CONDITIONS: Great winter rain fall allowed for a fantastic start to the 2012 vintage. With soil profiles full of moisture and even cool to warm days with cool nights allowed for a very long and even ripening period. A small heat spike early in the New Year hurried ripening on a little but the cool nights and good moisture levels held the vines canopies intact and protected the fruit from over exposure.



TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: Harvest Date: March - May 2012



pH: 3.6



Acidity: 6.4g/L



Alcohol: 14.44%



Residual Sugar: 1.0g/L



Bottling Date: August 2013



GRAPE VARIETY: Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Grenache, Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo



MATURATION: This wine was matured in a combination of French and American oak for 12 months.



COLOR: Rich dark red in colour with a dark purple rim.



NOSE/PALATE: “This wine has lots of upfront fruit while having a soft round structure and a slight hint of oak. The aromas and flavours show fresh berries, plums and vanilla. The palate is rich and plush with good structure. The soft velvety tan-nins provide balance and length. This wine can be enjoyed now, but will also improve with short term cellaring”. - Richard Mattner (Winemaker)
