The Barossa: An Ascent to Higher Quality (Dec 2021)

Inky ruby. Spice-accented black and blue fruit, vanilla, pipe tobacco and cola aromas are complemented by a smoky mineral overtone. Palate-staining cherry liqueur, blackcurrant, mocha and spicecake flavors show impressive depth and are braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Gains energy with air and finishes gently sweet and long, displaying persistent cherry and spice notes and harmonious, slowly building tannins.
