The 2010 vintage was one of the earliest on record for the Clare Valley beginning in early February. While most of South Eastern Australia was affected by the continuance of a severe drought, rainfall in the Clare Valley was almost average. An early budburst followed by a warm spring and summer hastened the ripening of all varieties which meant timing of harvest was critical. The resultant wines have excellent up front flavour concentration and balanced acidity.
Incredibly deep red, almost black in colour as is the norm with the red wines from the Gaelic Cemetery Vineyard. This wine shows all the usual blackberry, star anise and mocha characters that we have come to expect from this site. Rich and ripe on the palate, it displays plenty of texture and length driven by the robust natural tannins present. It will take a minimum of a decade to reveal all the inner secrets that the wine undoubtedly has. Excellent cellaring potential.
