James Halliday – Published on 10 Aug 2016

Hand-picked, crushed and open-fermented for 12 days, then matured in new and used French oak for 2 years. A richly endowed wine, with an array of black (predominantly) and red fruits, an air brush of McLaren Vale chocolate joined at the hip with oak. Everything is on song until the last moment when there is a slight phenolic catch on the flow.
