The 2013 vintage conditions in the Barossa Valley were suited to heat loving Grenache. Low moisture levels combined with a hot summer to concentrate the varietal characters of Grenache.
The wine is one of power, balance and is exceptionally varietal. The nose delivers black fruit and a subtle hint of bracken. The palate follows with a rich body of dark fruit compote and gentle spice, bound by a deep structure and modest oak integration.

Deep cherry pink in colour, the Moscato Rosa is intensely perfumed, with aromas of spice and rose petals, a touch of turkish delights and some orange peel.
On the palate it is sweet but not cloying, with a fresh, orange zest balancing the soft red berry fruit character.
Long and fragrant to the finish, Moscato Rosa has excellent ageing capacity.

A big, swinging bottle of pinot that delivers an impressively complex and concentrated pinot noir, with plenty of capacity to deliver over the next few years; a handy wine indeed. Aromas are of gently fragrant, floral fruits and show a lovely, spicy, exotic thread, gentle game meats and more. The palate has layers and layers of flavour, and really nicely designed oak structure augments the juicy, long and assertive pinot noir fruit flesh. Great persistence here.
