"Gorgeous dark purple, full of fizz as it pours; plenty of verve on the palate with a host of plum flavours, pepper and spice. Quite juicy, savoury and dry - it's not a fruity rendition. Indeed, tannins are plentiful with a little bitter twist on the finish."
Ned Goodwin, Halliday Wine Companion
This is delicious. Sweet and brambly dark berried fruit scents mingle with a joyous froth and an energetic finish, clad with pepper grind and clove. A savoury smokiness, too. Easy to guzzle with an solid chill.
The nose shows lifted red berry fruits, raspberry and red liquorice, spiced cloves and fresh, dark cherries.

Just one hour’s drive from South Australia’s capital, Adelaide, lies its gourmet capital (and wine Mecca), Barossa. One of the country’s most beautiful and historic wine regions, Barossa is a magnet for lovers of fine food and wine. Its classic Mediterranean climate, and free-draining red brown soils, makes the region ideal for growing grapes. Barossa produces excellent Shiraz, Cabernet, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Riesling and Semillon.
Growing up in the Barossa Valley, winemaker Richard Mattner was never far from wine. His grandfather's vineyard at the highly-regarded Light Pass district was Richard's playground during the school holidays. Upon leaving school, Richard gained employment as a cellar hand and began a career in the wine industry in 1993. Richard was destined to be a winemaker and in 2004 he graduated from Charles Sturt University with Bachelor of Applied Science (Wine Science). Richard says winemaking is an art and just another way of creatively expressing himself. In addition to his passion for red wine, Richard has a keen interest in all things sports and loves nothing more than to relax with friends and enjoy a char-grilled scotch fillet on the barbeque perfectly matched with a bottle of wine, of course.
