Region: McLaren Vale

Story: Why settle for ordinary when you could go Over the Top? From the vineyard to the winery, we've pulled out all the stops for this wine.

Vineyard:  Warraminga Park is located on Kays Road Blewitt Springs. One of the higher and cooler areas of McLaren Vale is situated next door to the Upper Tintara Vineyard, which was the first vineyard Thomas Hardy owned in McLaren Vale. These vines were planted in 1960 and cuttings are Upper Tintara Ancestry.

Soils: Soils are sandy loam which would have been sand dunes originating from the Holocene (11,700yrs)

Winemaking: Single Vineyard, Small batch open 3-tonne fermenter for 9 days on skins. Pressed directly to oak for completion of MLF, followed by maturation for 15 months in both new and aged French oak puncheons and hogsheads. No fining and minimal filtration.

Harvest Date: 15 March 

Nose:  The nose is elegant and complex with aromas of cherries and plums with spicy notes of pepper and cloves, complemented by toasty oak.

Palate: The palate is rich and concentrated with notes of raspberries, cherries, liquorice root, and spice with well-integrated oak, followed by velvety tannins and a long finish.

Cellaring: Drink now to 2034

Alc: 14.5% TA: 6.21g/L

"Deep and dark hue, this is an energetic style, overflowing with attractive freshness. In the glass, a combination of chocolate, dark berries, cherries, florals, dry herbs, and coffee beans. Sleek and supple texture, there is a hint of espresso bitterness on the very finish. Silky tannins are carried by impressive length and excellent balance. This has a most promising future over the next decade and the score should rise during that time."
