<10 tasting notes
(McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and Adelaide. 12 months in seasoned American oak hogsheads. 14.5% alc. TA 6.5g/L pH 3.68)
Oak really takes the lead here, though largely older oak. Could it be the absence of fruit that makes the oak stand out? Definitely a much spicier wine and sour in this lineup. Quite sour. Drying out already and quite forward with little fruit joy. Didn’t like this much – the drying finish is very brutal and it just doesn’t taste inviting. May well improve but big question marks about whether the fruit can cope with that structure.
