Named after Bruce Baudinet, a partner in Kilikanoon Wines and vineyard owner from where the Mataro and Shiraz for the blend are selected. This multi award-winning wine is crafted in the image of a classic southern Rhone blend, the three varieties come together with tremendous synergy, balance and complexity..
Each variety is harvested separately at optimum flavour ripeness and vinified in small open fermenters, where time honoured techniques of hand plunging, délestage and basket pressing are used to gently extract colour, flavour and tannin from the skins. Once pressed, each batch is matured for fourteen months in seasoned French oak before the final cuvee’ is assembled.
Deep garnet red with a purple hue.
An expected complex basket of blackberry, plums and spice with wafts of tanned leather and fresh lavender.
The palate is concentrated and seamless with red plums, cherries and blackberries all colliding together. A savoury, spicy backbone of subtle smoke and tar wafts through silky, plush tannins to a long, generous, and expressive finish. A wine that continues to evolve in the glass as it airs.
