Deep dark inky red.
Rich & powerful dark fruit aromas with subtle spice & mocha notes.
A very well integrated palate that expresses rich dark fruits & delicate spice with an underlying earthiness. The elegant tannins provide a velvety mouthfeel complemented by intense fruit flavours.
“A treasure of a wine!” – Ben (Cellar Hand)
Langhorne creek is on the Fleurieu Peninsula, south of Adelaide. The growing season is predominantly moderated by the onshore southerly winds blowing directly from the Southern Ocean across Lake Alexandrina. The prevailing southerlies reduce daytime temperature fluctuations. These southerlies also decrease overall summer temperatures, while increasing the relative humidity. The regions fertile soils are predominantly deep, alluvial sandy loams that vary in colour from red-brown to dark grey, with patches of black, self-mulching clays.
Langhorne Creek has a similar climate to Margaret River due to the moderating maritime winds however, the significant temperature changes come at different times of the growing & ripening seasons. Langhorne Creek tends to experience warmer temperatures earlier in the growing season, whereas, Margaret River tends to experience its heat spikes early in the verasion stage. The two regions also have distinctly different landscapes. Langhorne Creek’s flat river delta landscape is ideal for large scale, relatively low cost viticultural practices, whereas Margaret River’s undulating and varied landscape creates an opportunity to use various viticultural techniques to optimise ripening and quality.
Rebecca seeks the best possible fruit from our own and other specialised Langhorne Creek vineyards to craft traditional, full bodied, full flavoured, mouth filling Langhorne Creek wines that show a consistency of style whilst encouraging the true varietal grape characteristics to be expressed.
