The 2017 Eclipse is still fresh and primary, with scents of roses and berry-herb tea. Full-bodied in the mouth yet light in feel, it marries ripe cranberries, raspberries, cherries and garrigue-like notes in an airy voile of silken flavor, then finishes long, with notes of dark chocolate and gentle tannins. This year, the blend is 90% Grenache, 6% Shiraz and 4% Graciano, all aged in previously used wood.
"Produced from 90% Grenache, 6% Shiraz and 4% Graciano grown on our estate vineyards in McLaren Vale. The 2017 growing season seems to have suited our old vines well. They benefited from the abundant moisture of the spring and then we were blessed by the late arrival of warm, dry weather in March to ripen the smallish crop to perfection. Healthy grapes led to healthy ferments so the work in the cellar was easy. The resulting wine is very full bodied reflecting the late season sunshine but as usual it is not heavy, with natural poise and balance. It's complex in flavour, with red fruits, spices and earthy/woody notes and it should provide delicious drinking at anytime over the next 10 years or more."- Winery
