Deepest, darkest Barossa. Cola, charcoal, dark chocolate, blueberry, vanilla, Morello cherry, blackcurrant and blood plum. There is a lot going on! Full-bodied, luscious and tight. Mouth-coating. Some Star Anise and some very high quality oak. Fruit and oak are threaded perfectly and in balance. Traditional done so well. No heaviness or fat, nothing overdone. Such an ease of drinking and no drying tannin. Unusually it seemed to tighten up after opening. A wine of immense quality and character. Waters Wine Co
Grapes were sourced from Roennfeldt Road in the sub-region of Marananga in the Barossa Valley. After fermentation in small parcels the wine was matured in 50% new French oak for 18 months prior to bottling. The colour is deep and intense. Maranaga wines are known for their forest berry fruit characters and this wine is no exception. Ample tannins to provide structure and longevity.
