VINEYARDS
The majority of the sourced old vines on estate vineyards close to Lyndoch renowned for red and dark berry fruit with great tannin and acid structure. Small portions of fruit from the northern Barossa provide dense dark ripe fruits and grippy tannins for longevity. 

VINTAGE CONDITIONS
2012 was a classic vintage. Ideal rain in winter, spring and early summer led into a magnificent extended autumn, which produced premium fruit with outstanding natural flavour.

WINEMAKING
A static fermenter and extended maceration extracted maximum colour and tannins. Selected batches spent between 16 and 24 days on skins 20-28C. The wine then spent 24 months in selected premium oak.
