This wine is a deep red with a bright magenta hue. Vibrant aromatics of red and blackberry fruits, a lift of violet florals, clove spice, and mixed garden herbs. The palate is dominated by a lively burst of berry fruits, which are well framed by fine, powdery tannins. Juicy plum and blackberry flavors persist through the finish, with sweet spice to close. This wine is ideally suited to good food, good friends, and good conversation.
Wine has been flowing in the Clare Valley since 1851 and is an integral part of the culture. It is one of Australia’s most prestigious premium wine regions, most famous for its Riesling and Shiraz. A small area, accounting for less than 1.5% of Australia’s total wine production.
With its beautiful, rolling hills, ideal winter rainfall, and Mediterranean climate, the Clare Valley carries a unique history and heritage.
