Der rote Sonnenschein fängt die Wärme des Kontinents, die Frucht und Vollmundigkeit australischen Weines ein und wärmt uns an kalten Winterabenden ebenso wie er uns – leicht gekühlt – zum Barbecue begleitet.

Winemaker´s comments:
The best Simply Sunshine we have made. A wonderful reflection of a perfect vintage. The fruit is of very high quality, sourced from our McLaren Vale and the cooler Adelaide Hills vineyards. Vibrant rich purple colour, the nose is redolent of black fruits, liquorice, exotic spices and Turkish delight. These flow through to the spicy, full flavoured, generous palate finishing with lovely, ripe, round tannins.
Barrique?  20% older oak – mix of French and American hogsheads

A perfect vintage in SA – possibly the best vintage ever for red wines in McLaren Vale. Good winter rains in 2009, some early heat at flowering which reduced crop levels in some varieties, but then a beautiful period from fruit set right through veraison and ripening with moderately warm daytime temperatures and cool evenings and no rainfall. Red varieties showed wonderful colour, great varietal characters and ripe, crunchy tannins.
