Sam Kim, Wine Orbit- 94/100 points, 5 Stars
Perfumed, complex and inviting, the bouquet shows Black Doris plum, blueberry compote, violet, thyme and roasted nut characters with subtle black olive notes. The palate delivers excellent fruit concentration and weight, wonderfully complemented by plush mouthfeel and fleshy texture, finishing superbly long and silky. At its best: 2019 to 2026. Certified organic and biodynamic.
This Shiraz fruit was grown in the 25 year old ‘Rise' vineyard in McLaren Vale, South Australia. The McLaren Vale region, located on the coastline, has been producing wine since 1838 and is one of the most historically important vineyard areas in Australia. The geology of the region was formed over 550 million years. Warm summers and mild winters are moderated by the cool winds from the hills and the sea.
Winemaking techniques used were traditional and focussed on extracting flavour, structure and fruit characters. A combination of dark fruits, chocolate and spice are surrounded by fine tannins and a long finish.
Biodynamics is an exciting growing and holistic farming technique established decades ago, adhering to organic principals and using lunar calendar for various plant and soil management activities. The biodynamic approach includes its treatment of animals, crops, and soil as a single system.Serving Try opening for an hour prior to drinking.
