Winemaking Notes

Hand picked from 80+ year old vines.  A small percentage of the Shiraz/Grenache were co-fermented.  Fermented in a combination of open concrete and stainless.  Cultured yeast, using a variety of strains, was added during the crush. Extended maceration for some parcels of Grenache. Up to 2 weeks post fermentation. Grenache 7-10 days on skins, all others 6-9 days. 100% oak maturation. No new oak, 2, 3 and 4 year old French and American oak, majority puncheons – aged for 18 months. Cellar potential of another 12+ years.

Colour

Bright, alluring red

Nose

Lifted spicy nose

Palate

Fresh and rich with fruitcake, spice & pepper.  The tannin structure is fine and silky giving great intensity with a velvety smooth finish.

Dedication

Shoulder to shoulder we stand with pride, love and unity

Erik de Haart survived one of Australia’s worst tragedies - the 2002 Bali bombings.  The heartbreaking loss of his Coogee Dolphins team mates and the horrendous aftermath of the attack will never leave him. Whilst his courageous and selfless efforts on that terrible night saved many lives, Erik personally retreated from the hero tag that everyone else believed he deserved.  After many years of suffering in silence, Erik has displayed even more courage to bring attention to one of our society’s most insidious dangers – the mental anguish he suffers through the guilt of those he couldn’t save.  Erik’s powerful story will continue to assist other people in our community to seek assistance with their own problems.  Whilst we will never know the ever present emotional pain he endures, we stand shoulder to shoulder with Erik in pride, love and unity.

Gold (94 pts) –  2017 Gilbert & Gaillard Contours International
Intense garnet still in its youth. Racy nose of mocha, fine spices, dried herbs & toast. Lush, velvety, ample palate with splendid young, striking aromas. Still firm, tense, harmoniously structured & refined. A superb wine for gourmet foods.

Gold (93 points) – Wine Showcase

Commended – 2018 International Wine Challenge

Reviews

96 points (5 Stars) – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit  Wonderfully fruited and seductively complex, the bouquet shows dark fruit, cocoa, game, black olive and toasted hazelnut characters. The palate is concentrated and supple, and delivers rich fruit intensity and voluptuous mouthfeel, brilliantly framed by silky tannins. The wine is multi-layered and shows impressive depth, and offers terrific drinking.

95 points – Ray Jordan  A staple Barossa blend that works so well. Typically, earthy dusty notes on the nose with a dry savoury palate a feature. This is as if it has a direct line into the vineyard such is its distinctive stamp. Slight dark chocolate richness with plenty of savory notes for complexity. Cellar 10 years.
95 points – Stephen Read, Wine Matrix  Well balanced and fruity with layers of earthy, confectionary, chocolate and blackcurrant aromas. It explodes in the mouth with spicy, savory, sweet dark berry flavours – all in perfect balance with soft tannins and acid. Beautifully crafted and well worth the $100 rrp. Cellar for 8 to 10 years.
94 points – Greg Swift, Wine Matrix  Deep dark ruby hues with ripe berries and dark chocolate delicately sitting on the nose. Wonderfully balanced on the palate where the dusty grenache shines. This wine is structured and the dedication of the winemaker is apparent wine in the balance of tannins and acid. The trio of varietals will only get better with five years rest. 

93 points – Patrick Eckel
