Each year the Phantom blend presents something new. This vintage has seen the introduction of two new varieties to the blend, Sangiovese and Tempranillo. Each batch is picked at its optimum maturity for flavour and expression, then fermented separately in open fermenters, plunged daily to extract only the softest tannins and then gently pressed off into French oak for ageing. In my mind this is how the wines come together: The Cabernet provides the base line for structure, the Shiraz, sweetness, the Tempranillo adds spice and richness, and the Sangiovese and Mourvedre are all about the finish, adding weight, brightness and soft integrated tannins.
Dark cherry, mulberry, Chinese 5 spice, liquorice, dark chocolate, quite confectionary on the nose. A vibrant fleshy wine with flavours of marshmallow, mulberry and delicious red fruits with a hint of fairy floss. Silky, textured and very focused.

The Phantom Story
Very few know who the Phantom is. Every year he leaves his mark on the McLaren Vale region through a unique blend – a blend of both red wine, and character. A master of disguise, he remains anonymous, letting the wine he puts forward speak on his behalf. He spends his days watching over the region undetected, sourcing the next secret blend recipe. The blend will change year-to- year, the experience will remain the same.

A full and fruity style wine. Sweet strawberry and wild berry fruit flavours add richness leading on to a soft and rounded finish.
