Color: Deep dark cherry-red.
Nose: Initially, plummy fruits meshed with sweet spices (predominantly cinnamon), almond. And then a pause to imbibe the aromatic atmospherics of a patisserie:

Crème anglaise, cannoli with vanilla custard … and classic bourbon vanilla at that!

A croquembouche’s (profiterole) hazelnut brittle.

Grated chocolate – both white and dark.

Fresh, awakening.

Palate: Medium-bodied.

Raspberry/chocolate flavors with a sprinkling of spice and cola.

Symptoms: Fleshy, and an almost glycerolic texture; bulbous/expansive palate profile.

Diagnosis: Tannins – integrated/embedded – supportive, not standing apart.

Oak – no obtrusive flavors to speak of … yet all the benefits of a calm maturation is seasoned hogsheads.

Acidity – in tune with the wine’s weight and structure.

Cure: Rest in bottle for a year or two. Needs time.

Vintage conditions
2018 vintage
South Australia’s viticultural regions experienced relatively dry conditions, and near long-term winter/spring temperatures during vine dormancy and at the beginning of the growing season. After a racing start, a short spell of cooler weather in early November slowed down grapevine development. Warm and sunny weather prevailed throughout most of spring, providing optimal conditions for flowering and fruit-set. Summer was warm, Barossa Valley experienced 22 days of temperature greater than 35°C while McLaren Vale experienced 17 days of temperature greater than 35°C – with a maximum of 42.1°C on January 18th. Padthaway, Robe and Wrattonbully also had a warm, dry growing season by regional standards. Late flowering and the delayed onset of veraison throughout the south-east slowed harvest by a few weeks. The warm and dry weather carried into autumn, setting up an Indian summer with favorable conditions for ripening grapes.
