“The Limb family have been a part of the viticultural and winemaking landscape of South Australia since the early 1920’s. The vineyard lies along the Western Ridge of the Barossa Valley, near the hamlet of Seppeltsfield. Facing west, it catches the afternoon sun, whilst the shallow and infertile soils only allow the vines to eke out a meagre existence - yielding a very small crop of intensely flavoured fruit. This small section of the Barossa is renowned for wines of great power and elegance, and this release is no exception to that.
Traditionally open fermented with 10 days of skin contact, then basket pressed to barrel - this single barrel of wine was matured in a new French oak hogshead for almost 2 years. Bright, deep, brooding and intense - this wine has all the hallmarks of this noble variety and expresses it’s soil and geography with incredible length of flavour. Can be enjoyed roundly now, or cellared comfortably for the next 10 – 15 years.”
