    Winemaker's Notes:

    COLOUR Black to the core. AROMA Very complex amalgam of aromas such as; Licorice, tar, earth, cedar chocolate and the blackest of fruits such as Boysenberry, blackberry and fresh prunes. PALATE 2005 has produced wines of stellar power and concentration whilst remaining perfectly balanced. The 2005 Ares is no exception. Incredibly viscous and concentrated with excellent poise and balance for such a powerful wine, the acid and tannins working in perfect harmony. The tannins are integrated throughout and will help the wine mature gracefully. WINEMAKING Crushed and fermented in 5-10 tonne open top fermenters with regular pump overs; three daily during peak fermentation to extract colour and tannin. Following 7-21 days of maceration the dry free run is drained to tank, the wine is then racked to barrel. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel. Minimal fining and non filtered. MATURATION 22 months maturation with the final 12 months in 100% new French oak hogsheads. ANALYSIS Alc 15.4%, pH 3.2, Acidity 7.8 CELLAR POTENTIAL 20+ years if carefully cellared REGION Barossa Valley South Australia
