Our Price: $59.99 / bottle
(RRP $70.00)

Case: 6 bottles

Deep garnet in colour with an alluring complex aroma of dark-cherry, plums and roasted vanilla bean. The palate is powerful and well structured, fleshy, with chewy textured tannins finishing with polish and focus. The 2016 was an exceptional Barossa vintage indicating this wine will mature well for many years.

  • Hand harvested, destemmed and crushed into small 1.5 tonne open topped fermenters. The fruit was chilled for 6 days before being allowed to naturally warm up to start fermentation. To optimise the vineyard expression a range of hand plunging cap management techniques were used across the different vineyard parcels. Post-pressing, the wines were transferred to a combination of new and seasoned French and American oak hogsheads. Matured for 20 months in oak without racking, the wines were then carefully blended, naturally clarified and bottled without filtration.

    To qualify for the Romulus blend the vineyards need to over 50 years of age and managed sustainably.
