Adelaide Hills, Australia. Trying to get to know Aussie red.
I do like the label - great colour reproduction (sort of a high vis dark cyan) with a matt finish. Wine is great too - hits those big barossan notes of deep rich blackberry, black cherry, chocolate with ripe tannin, but not over-cooked, lengthy finish in a fresh fruited mid-weighted package. 24% whole bunch. — a month ago
A nice mix of black/blue/red fruits, lightly spiced, Medium to full bodied, feels like a bit of whole bunch (?) nicely dry savoury finish, tannic, crisp acidity. 93 as I thoroughly enjoyed sitting at their new cellar door with the afternoon sun filtering through the gums. — 5 months ago
Previous bottle was only 10 days ago, fresh on delivery of a mixed dozen direct from Spinifex - and I gave it 92. This time giving it 94 - sour cherry more subdued and fleshy raspberry a bit more forward - much better balance and into delicious territory. What happened? Is it mood? Or was the previous bottle drunk too soon on delivery (is there such a thing as bottle shock on young wine?), or is it bottle variation? I think both were drunk with a similar amount of airtime. In any case, lovely Grenache. — 3 months ago
Opens with vanilla, raspberry highlights, black fruited foundation, nice acidity and fine savoury tannin. Needed a good couple of hours for it to all come together with an earthy broad savoury finesse and finish. Next time (I’ve got 5 bottles left) will begin with a 2 hour decant and cut to where I like it :) — 5 months ago
