“Mourvedre from Heathcote gently handled by winemaker Adam Foster. I like this iteration away from the mainstays of McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley. Some extra savouriness and grunt. Lavender in terracotta pots.

This is fine stuff. Red currants, brambles, twiggy wood spice, pepper, lavender and sweet earth. Medium weight with good concentration, almost mouth perfume-y, long in flavour, ribbed with dusty tannins. Has that almost mulberry pudding kind of feel to it, but not overtly sweet. Very enjoyable stuff here. This is one for savouring over long, cool nights.”
