Background

Roman Bratasiuk, with a background in bio-chemistry produced his first vintage in 1990 - he is now considered by experts as one of the world’s top winemakers. The winery is located just 40 kilometres outside Adelaide, where vines have been planted since 1845 - Roman produces 19 single vineyard wines and they are all 100% varietal. The grapes are all hand-picked and pruned – wines are matured in Burgundian barriques and bottled without fining or filtration to capture the individual character of each vineyard. Roman set out to make world class wines…he has accomplished that goal.

Tasting Notes

Low lying blackcurrant and chocolate melds with pungent earthy truffle characters to produce a distinctively Pomerol styled Merlot. Impregnated liquorice and chocolate cake flavours offers fleshy, cassis and blackcurrant intensity. Its balance of freshness with savoury like flavours keeps the viewer engaged. Still a substantial amount of firmness tying up the mid palate but he enduring flavours and balance promise substantial future extension.
