Fruit sourced from Tim Fechner’s property, just north of Angaston. Stewed plum, orange peel, bay leaves, liquorice straps and amaro (vecchio amaro del capo – personal favourite) is pretty predominant on the nose. Round and plush mouthfeel upfront, with the characters from the nose carrying through to the palate, to fine grained/tightly woven tannin centred in the middle of the tongue. The mulberry like acid lingers on the tongue, with slight flavours of dried garrigue herbs coming through.
Poor limestone soil, +/- 350m above sea level, picked late in April. Hand picked, plunged, pressed, bottled, labelled and loved. 4500 bottles produced.
