James Halliday - Published on 01 Apr 2015

Estate-grown, matured for 18 months in used French hogsheads. McLaren Vale dark chocolate comes thundering through the moment the wine is tasted, the red fruits of the grenache hanging on for dear life on the finish and aftertaste. Is it a caricature? No, it's not, but it has to be placed in context.
