Bursting with blackcurrant and blueberries, this wine shows the typical characters found in the Western side of the Barossa- chocolate/mocha and black pepper, but with a surprising freshness to the wine. Frankincense and blackberries jump out of the glass, along with a slight leafiness, which comes from the whole bunch component in the wine. Soft and juicy on the palate, but with a backbone of tannin from the whole bunches that draws the wine across the palate giving it length and precision.

Winemaker's Notes
Our Purple Hands crew transferred the fruit by hand or by pitchfork into half-tonne picking bins, then foot stomped the fruit to burst the berries and encourage the natural fermentation to commence. 20% of this wine was fermented as whole bunch in this way, with the balance fermented on skins for 10 days in old concrete fermenters. Basket pressed to a 3,000L French oak foudre for 16 months, then bottled with no fining and no filtration.
