The marriage of Coonawarra's Terra Rossa over limestone soils, with Bordeaux varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, has produced some of Australia's greatest and longest living wines. Wines released under the 'Terra Rossa' classification are made exclusively from fruit grown on the rich red soils of this infamous strip.
The invaluable elements of these soils crossed with the cooler climate of the region combine to produce a range of wines showing wonderful fruit expression, complexity, elegance in structure and excellent cellaring potential.
EYE: This wine is deep red with purple hues in colour.
AROMA: The nose is rich with aromas of blackcurrant and blueberry with hints of spice and soft vanilla.
PALATE: It has a medium-bodied palate with dark fruits of blackberry and cherry. Soft, fine tannins, chocolate and cedar, a slight earthiness and toasty hints move through to a persistent finish.
