Rich and bright red in colour with a dark purple rim, the nose shows rich and concentrated red and blue fruits, dark chocolate and hints of spice. The palate is plush with excellent structure. Fine, chalky tannins offer length and power while finishing soft, with a full of flavour.
Langhorne Creek lies on the ancient floodplain of the Bremer River. It was named by George Green in 1854 after the Langhorne Brothers, who brought cattle overland to the area in the 1840s. The first vines were planted in the 1850s by Frank Potts who was attracted by the fertile soils and vast red gums, and many vineyards soon followed. The region's warm climate - tempered southerly ocean winds over Lake Alexandrina - combined with alluvial soils, produces soft, mouth-watering shiraz.Â
The wine was fermented then aged in a mix of French & American oak. Individual parcels are then matured separately to maximise complexity.Â
