Colour: Deep plum with crimson and purple hues.
Nose: A complex array of fruit, oak and subtle maturation aromas. An attractive combination of raspberry and plum fruit with hints of liquorice, vanilla and light toast add depth to the fruit aromas.
Palate: Rich layers of generous fruit and oak. Raspberry and plum fruit with a touch of spice are seamlessly integrated with premium oak. Fine, mouth-filling tannins are in harmony with the well-rounded palate structure and lingering finish.
Coonawarra’s 2012 vintage was excellent with above-average summer temperatures and below-average rainfall for the year. This contributed to earlier ripening and lower yields. Warm and dry conditions leading up to harvest were conducive to one of the earliest vintages on record. Prodigy is crafted from small parcels of grapes harvested from sites that have consistently produced fruit with outstanding depth of fruit flavour, excellent colour and firm tannin structures. Oak maturation: 25 months in small 225L barriques of which 21% were new French oak, 27% new American and 22% older French barriques.
Grape Variety: Shiraz
Harvest: 20th - 22nd March 2012
Alc/vol. :: 14.5%
Cellaring potential: Cellared correctly, Prodigy will age gracefully for 10 to 15 years.
