Winemaker Chris Thomas, AKA C.T. selected his favourite barrels to produce this elegant Shiraz.
Colour: Dark red with a crimson halo.
Nose: Unmistakable McLaren Vale Shiraz bouquet: dark red fruits, cloves, cassis, with lovely French oak notes of cedar and star anise further lifting the fruit out of the glass.
Palate: The palate is rich and full with layers of dark fruits, licorice and plums. The mouthfeel is refined and long, with the tannin from the cooler Clarendon Vineyard giving the wine an elegant tannin line giving the wine great length. The 24 months of oak maturation, using second fill oak has added complexity while maintaining a graceful balance between the fruit and oak flavours.
