Winemaker Notes: Primitivo from dry grown vines on the rose quartz soils of our Dadd’s Block is hand harvested to ensure the grapes are delivered to the winery in whole clusters. Partially destemming into open top fermenters, around 30% whole clusters are included in the ferment, which is allowed to start naturally. In contact with skins for around 12 days with daily pumpovers early in ferment followed by punching down as the ferment finished, ensures gentle and controlled extraction. The wine is moved to bottle after only six months ageing, to capture its vibrancy and energy. Raspberry, black pepper, dried oregano and tobacco leaf make this a dry red that is atypical for the Barossa climate with its high end aromatics. The sweet, soft and round tannin palate bring back the familiarity of this warm climate and early released wine. Flavours of bright red fruits, wild herbs and bright acidity ensure that this wine is best enjoyed at the lunch or dinner table and drunk with friends in abundance without any pretentiousness.

Winemaker Notes:  Mataro from dry grown vines on the rose quartz soils of our Dadd’s Block is fermented with 30% whole cluster inclusion and blended with other parcels of Mataro from Light Pass and Greenock. We then add some old bush vine Grenache from the Barossa foothills where the sandy soils are shallow on calcrete and limestone. This complex Grenache fruit adds spiciness and intensity. Add to that some Greenock and Tanunda Shiraz and we have a wine that has a mouthful of everything superb about a Southern Rhone styled blend. Daily pump overs early in ferment, followed by punching down as the ferment finished, ensure gentle and controlled extraction. Aged in tank and barrel, each parcel is selected to add as much interest as possible.
Mataro gives roasted cumin, cinnamon, peppercorn and savoury profile that is complimented by dark cherry and kirsch nuances from the Grenache. Some raspberry sweetness from the Tanunda Shiraz complete a truly complex and intriguing blended wine. A true reflection of the heralded 2018 vintage, where volume and weight is there on show, but it lets all the complexities of these aromatic varieties take centre stage. The usual firm tannin line suggests potential for time in the cellar.
