In 2019, Follow The Line is made up of 89% Cinsault from 39 year old dry farmed Darling bush vines together with 11% Syrah from the same property. The wine spent 3 to 5 weeks on skins, 50% as whole bunches. Ageing took place over 10 months in oval foudre ranging from 1,500-2000 litres.

True to form, this wine is ultra perfumed and incredibly pretty with soft seductive aromatics of crushed rose petals, spring cherry blossoms, dried lavender, a melange of red summer berry fruits and an exotic Turkish delight twist. The palate shows a fabulously self assured, compact core of bright red fruits, intense zippy red cherry Kool Aid, candied red berry notes and a super dense yet supple core of purity rarely seen on modest Cinsault. The tannins are fleshy, silky soft and almost imperceptible with the harmonious finesse of the sublime palate texture grabbing all the drinkers attention.

Superbly balanced, subtly piquant and saline, this wine has such a dreamy, creamy finish. Breathtaking purity of fruit and the most well honed, elegant poise to suggest that this could be one of finest expressions of Follow The Line to date. A truly profound wine. Drink this from release and over the next 3 10 years.  Greg Sherwood MW
