Black cherry, blueberry with a hint of dried orange peel. Soft and velvety with wild berries and baking spice and a succulent and balanced finish.
Organically grown grapes from the Bassham vineyard in Barmera.
Hand sorted and fermented in an open vat for two weeks. Plunged and pumped over for extra skin contact with another week on skins post-ferment. Pressed and racked to barrel for maturation for 8 months before blending and bottling.
Alcohol: 13.5% alc/vol
So the young kraken cast aside his ferocious guise and, overcome with joy, he allowed himself to be forever captured by her gentle spell.
Indian lamb and potato curry
Beautifully ripe and inviting, the bouquet shows mixed berry compote, clove, game and floral notes on the nose, leading to a silky-smooth palate that's supple and lingering. A gorgeously comforting wine with attractive savoury nuances. At its best: now to 2023.
