Surprisingly, the wine already shows quite a brown colour and looks very developed. It tastes of mulberries and has earthy, savoury flavours. The oak is very much in the background. Overall, the fruit is a little thin for a 'big Barossa', but the wine has nice silky flavours and good length. Probably not the best year for this wine, but it is quite interesting, as there is a lot going on. It needs to be drunk, though.
