TASTING NOTES

Marananga, centred in the North West quadrant of the Barossa provides some of the Valley’s most powerful wines. The red brown clay loam soils with schists and siltstone yield flavours of jam and fruitcake, cardamom, blueberry fruits, cocoa powder with an undercurrent of roasted meats and crackling.

WINEMAKING

To ensure the unique character of this sub-region is exemplified in the wine, small open fermenters and our basket press were employed to gently extract the wine. Aging in the finest quality oak for 18 months and selection of the truest barrels has created a wine that respects and expresses its place of origin.

Review by: Huon Hooke, The Real Review

Deep, dark purple/red colour. The aromas are floral and violet-like, with super-ripe aroma and flavour allied with slightly coarse, gritty tannins and a chewy finish. A very big, power-packed shiraz with grip and heft. It needs time. It will be very long-lived and richly reward cellaring. Drinking Recommendation: 2023–2038

Review by: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

This is immensely powerful and opulent, showing blackberry, dark chocolate, cured meat, cedar and violet aromas on the nose. The palate is equally impressive with outstanding depth and richness, wonderfully framed by chalky tannins, making the wine sturdy and persistent. At its best: now to 2038.
