Mid Ruby in colour. Aromas of cherry, spice and mushrooms with a note of dried meat. White pepper on the palate but not much on the nose strangely enough. Medium weight palate - northern Rhone in style - very different to the fruit driven styles in the Barossa and McLaren Vale. For around 35 years this has been one of my favourite reds in Australia. Wine was first made on this site in the 1860’s. Pat Carmody and his wife Dianne replanted the site in 1976 retaining the beautiful old blue stone gravity fed winery from the 19th century. An icon of Australian wine from small production - probably not a lot exported. This is the first of 6 purchased, so great times ahead!
