Eden Valley, SA
This is a coiled and compact red wine textured by super-fine and silky tannins - tannins as if in miniature. These coat the palate, but do so in neat check-step with the slightly dangerous and enticing fruits: perfect plums, the season’s first blackberries, blueberries chilled. Alongside come hints of cedar and smoked meats. A long finish, and as long as the fruit is concentrated and unalloyed.
