The bouquet is full of the fresh berries and spice synonymous with McLaren Vale, with a slight eucalypt lift. There is real interest in the secondary characters of sarsaparilla, cinnamon and clove which are expressed more completely as the air opens it up. The palate is mouth coating and plush with red and purple fruits mingling with orange peel and earth. There is a welcomed kick of five spice on the back palate. The lifted and fine fruit. tannins provide structure on a savoury finish.
