Background

Roman Bratasiuk, with a background in bio-chemistry produced his first vintage in 1990 - he is now considered by experts as one of the world’s top winemakers. The winery is located just 40 kilometres outside Adelaide, where vines have been planted since 1845 - Roman produces 19 single vineyard wines and they are all 100% varietal. The grapes are all hand-picked and pruned – wines are matured in Burgundian barriques and bottled without fining or filtration to capture the individual character of each vineyard. Roman set out to make world class wines…he has accomplished that goal.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Deep Crimson

Nose: A harmonious combination of forest floor, polished wooden furniture, raisin cake mix with understated cassis and blackberry fruits, in what is a very low altitude, reserved expression. As the glass evolves with air the altitude of perfume slowly rises and a bouquet of cedar, roast almond, leather boot and a deep current of blackcurrant finely interlace with the aforementioned earthiness and create something quite unique and sophisticated.

Palate: There is careful attention to detail across this finely polished and creamy smooth palate that evidently reflects the 40% Merlot inclusion. Layers of pure black fruit, earthy olive tapenade and subtle degrees of cigar tobacco, roast almond and baking spice nuance throughout this classical styled composition.
