Description

This vineyard was established in the year 2000 near Parndarna on Kangaroo Island. Planted to 5000 vines per hectare on gravelly loams, these vines benefit from the maritime climate of Kangaroo Island.

This medium-bodied wine is spicy with firm tannins and terrific length, an excellent example of the variety and an interesting contrast to Langhorne Creek Malbec. The wine has been racked before bottling without filtration, it is normal that some sediment may form after a period of cellaring. Decanting one hour prior to drinking is recommended.
