JAMES HALLIDAY

THE WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN
September 2021

“From 55yo estate vines; fermented and matured 17 months in new and used French oak. The bouquet has the inimitable McLaren Vale fusion of plum and dark chocolate, the palate wonderfully light on its feet thanks to controlled alcohol and oak letting the terroir speak.”

A collector's item. Old Vine vineyards deliver a wine of complexity, richness and length. Carefully selected parcels from stunning old vine vineyards across a broad style of terroirs. From Clarendon in the North, Blewitt Springs, Willunga and the family's Warboys Vineyard. The wine is a selection of the best barrels from multiple old vineyards to make a wine of complexity and collectability—opaque purple with bright hues. Dark blackberry fruit, bitter chocolate and liquorice are aromas of dark blackberry fruit and liquorice bound by high-quality French oak. Rich and full on the front of the palate with black cherry and dark berry fruit on the middle palate. The finish is long and well-structured, heralding a great wine with substantial ageing potential—cellar potential...15+ years.
