VINEYARD / SOIL
Wrattonbully adjoins the Coonawarra area in the southern part of the Limestone Coast wine zone. The prominent viticultural feature of the area is the series of ancient beach ridges and dunes which run roughly north-south through the area. These ridges are made up of soft crumbly limestone which weathers to produce the red and brown Terra Rossa clay loam soils so highly prized for grape growing. The ridges and dunes have elevations of up to 30m compared with the Coonawarra Terra Rossa ‘high’ of less than 5m. The extra elevation on the Wrattonbully dunes produce the advantage of cold air drainage which reduces the risk of frost during the growing season.

NOTES
A complex nose of dark berry fruits with a heady mix of lifted spice notes integrated well with subtle French oak. Rich and concentrated, this wine displays sweet mid palate fruit with complex spice flavours. The nicely structured finish is balanced well by subtle ripe tannins.
