2021 Spice Garden
The Spice Garden is a special part of the vineyard, uncovered as part of our work with Pedro Parra. Polygon 10... "a vomit of limestone in a sea of schist..." is always the central component, and with lifted florals, cool fruit character, spice and Barossa garrigue... there is a lot going on here. In a richer year this is complete and a perfectly poised follow up to the nervy 2020.

“Effusive nose of perfectly ripe plums and wild blackberries with a hint of something exotic. The well-crafted tannins are well matched with the ripe fruit and freshness. This only needs a little more time for all of this to come together beautifully. Excellent energy and length. Drinkable now, but best from 2024.”
