Description

  • French oak
  • Black fruits
  • Graphite
  • Grippy tannins

"Beautifully fruited and varietally expressive, the wine shows cassis, vanilla, mint, subtle spice and violet aromas on the nose. The palate delivers succulent fruit intensity together with silken texture and fine grainy tannins, making it flavoursome and brilliantly structured. At its best: now to 2030" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jan 2022

A fragrant, aromatic nose that personifies Coonawarra, showing complexing characters of black fruits, graphite and vital, spicy oak. The palate is medium to full bodied and almost claret-like with its grippy but integrated tannins, ensuring a long finish.

A vintage that could be charcterised by a small amount of high quality fruit. The season started with abundant rain and the region was lucky not to be touched by the bushfires that hit other parts of South Australia. Yields were down due to a cool Spring but the fruit was outstanding: small berries that were concentrated with good tannins.

The fruit is partially hand-harvested before de-stemming and cool fermentation in small two tonne open fermenters with regular hand plunging. Matured in seasoned French oak (20% new French) for six months before bottling with minimal filtration and sulphur addition.

Burns & Fuller is a range of contemporary and fruit driven varietal wines made by Corey Ryan. Each wine is fruit-driven and balanced with a core of fruit given complexity by a barrell aged component.

Food Pairing: Perfect with roast lamb with rosemary and garlic.
