This is another hillside vineyard planted in the 1960's adjacent to the Onkaparinga Valley. The soil here is notable by it's absence, just solid rock and shale prevail on this site and the vine roots have to work very hard to survive. Situated in a natural ampitheatre with 360 degree aspects, this vineyard is dry grown and produces small crops of deeply concentrated Syrah with high tannin levels.

Don't let the big price fool you; this is no heavy monster. It's dark and juicy, its solid core of blackberry and dark plum flavors poised against a lively edge of acidity and fine tannins, lingering impressively on an immensely refined finish. Needs time. Best from 2007 through 2015. 75 cases imported.
