Description

  • Dark plum
  • Raspberry
  • Vanilla
  • Hazelnut & cocoa

"Perfumed and inviting, the wine shows sweet raspberry, dark plum, vanilla, hazelnut and cocoa characters on the nose, followed by a succulent palate that is plump and velvety. It is fabulously fruited and beautifully flowing to a lingering silky finish. At its best: now to 2022" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

A lifted nose of blackberry, cherry, tar and spice. A youthful, plump and fruit-filled palate is driven long and fine with supple tannins and fine natural acidity. This wine is full of flavour yet not too heavy, making it a wonderful match to many cuisine.

Sourced entirely from the Padthaway region to the north of the Limestone Coast in the heart of South Australia’s wine county. A combination of two vineyards, each contributing fruit character and richness to the final blend.

Picked in the cool of the morning to retain freshness, the fruit was then destemmed, crushed and sent to stainless steel vessels for fermentation. The wine was partially matured in a combination of stainless steel and second-use French oak before final blending and bottling.

Road to Enlightenment is a range of regional and varietally expressive wines seeking to be full flavoured, full of character and exceptionally drinkable. Wines of the past that were too overt in fruit, oak or weight is where it all began, the balanced, fresh and vibrant wines of Road to Enlightenment is where we are headed.

A refined Shiraz that has more elegance on the palate than the traditonal Australian Shiraz at this price level.
