Made by Reid Bosward and the team at Kaesler, one of the Barossa's oldest and most revered wineries. 20% Barossa Valley fruit has been added in to lift the complex , blue-fruited style of the Clare. The nose is classic South Australian- gutsy, brooding and dark-fruited, but with a hint of blue fruits from the dash of Clare Valley fruit. Gorgeous rich dark fruits, blood plums, blackberries, black earth, nutmeg and star anise. The palate follows through from the nose- black and blue fruits lead, then cinnamon, star anise, black and white pepper and nutmeg with sandy tannins. Warm but exceptionally well-balanced alcohol.

Over-delivers in quality, showing ripe boysenberry, blood plum, blackberry, white and black pepper and pencil shavings indicating some lovely French oak. Warm, gutsy palate follows with hints of savoury bay leaf and black olive. The rich, brooding Barossa fruit is nicely balanced by a dash of Clare Valley blue fruit and baking spices.
