Deep dark purple
Fine, elegant, restrained and with a touch of cedar, the nose shows floral/cherry fragrance, with an underlying hint of pepper: typical of concentrated Grenache . Oak plays a minor role in the background to allow the beautiful fruit to shine through.
This wine is all about texture, length and balanced fruit. It has medium body in which the tannins are long and soft while the bright fruit provides persistence of mouth feel. Fruit flavours are in the cherry spectrum.
Drink now to 15 years.
Curtis Family Vineyards sources fruit from a combination of owned vineyards and premium McLaren Vale growers. The blend of individual vineyard and sub-regional characteristics is the key to the resulting style.
