- 95 Punkte JAMES HALLIDAY: "…, open-fermented, 10 days on skins, matured in French hogsheads (33% new) for 18 months. The Barossa struggles to achieve X-factor with cabernet, but this goes oh so close. Its colour and bouquet are impressive, as is the juicy cassis fruit and fine tannins, quality French oak adding further to the wine, the length admirable. The verdict: gold medal, but no trophy."

It is a full bodied, warm mouth filling wine, showing mid palate softness and flavours characteristic of black berries and mint. The spicy oak characters and fine grain grape tannins compliment the round fruit-focussed palate concentration. The finish is long, with firm tannins and clean acidity. It’s a wine that will further soften and complex with careful cellaring. Vintage: An extremely dry late Spring (Oct - Dec) having only 20 mm of rain meant that vines on the St Jakobi vineyard were calling out for a drink when 50mm of rain fell in January. Warm dry conditions followed throughout the Barossa Valley bringing on a very early start to Vintage. Of course with little rain there is little risk of disease in the vineyard. The dry Spring weather and warmer conditions resulted in an earlier than normal harvest with all varieties being ready to harvest at a similar time. Picking started on the 9th of February and was completed by the 20th of February. 2015 Vintage lasted 12 days from start to finish. Harvesting was rushed as it’s important to pick when the time and flavours are right. We are very happy with the result. Your favourite recipe for this wine: Barbequed lamb cutlets, kangaroo or roast duck go well with this round mouth filling style. Supported by the black berry and mint characteristics of this wine.|
