Vineyard: Mountadam Vineyards was established in 1972 in the High Eden region of the Barossa overlooking a landscape at 550m altitude. The soils are over 500 million years old with low fertility and layers of rock dominating the site; perfect for wine grape growing.
Season: Spring rainfall was well below average with several days reaching 30°C. The growing season had even temperatures and little rainfall. Ripening was slow and steady leading to the development of good tannin structure and fruit characters.
Wine making: Hand-picked from the single vineyard before gentle pressing. After time on skins to extract concentrated colour the final blend was transfered into new French oak to mature for a further 18 months, 52% Merlot, 48% Cabernet.
Appearance: Dark red
Aroma/Bouquet: Black currant, red plum, fresh herbs, subtle hints of roast capsicum and cedar.
Palate: The palate has a backbone of fine grainy tannin and balanced acidity intertwined with dark berry fruits and notes of dark chocolate.
Food Pairing: Mushroom ragout, Risotto Parmigiana or lemon crusted lamb cutlets and seasonal salad.
Residual Sugar: NA
Cellar potential: 20+ years

Save 20% and pop the red bubbles this winter!
Sparkling red wines are one of the best discoveries when visiting cellar doors.
Refreshing, fruity, loaded with colour and a delight for many food matches. My recommendation is to enjoy with an Indian Dahl Curry, Italian pasta dishes, Moroccan cuisine or a rich dark chocolate pudding loaded with sweet seasonal berries.
