Rolf Binder Red Blend Barossa Valley Halliwell 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The bouquet of this wine is the abundance of glass-filling up-front berry fruit aromas. The subtle use of both old and new oak combined with soft tannins comes through on the palate. “Halliwell” offers scintillating scents of truffle, earth, blueberry, black cherry, and kirsch liqueur. Strong full bodied characters last right through to the back of the palate and linger, leaving your mouth wanting more. Layered and full-flavored, with excellent depth and concentration, it has enough structure to evolve for several years. It should drink well through 2016.

Rolf Binder Wines:
The vines in the vineyard were pruned and trellised in November (Spring), and their long shoots needed to be trained along the trellis. This was a vigorous growing time for the vines, and leading up to this vintage, we saw some of them already producing the small bunches of inflorescences (flowers) that will eventually become fruit.
