The new faces behind the Curtis Family Vineyards are Mark, Thomas & Jenna Curtis, with the guidance of their father, Claudio Curtis who lives on the vineyard just outside McLaren Vale. The name Curtis is thought to derive from Curtius, a noble and wealthy family of the First and Second Centuries AD, the Roman Empire era originating from the Latinium people.
Bursting with ripe red berry aromas with hints of vanilla. Full bodied and bursting with a complex mix of flavours of ripe red berries, chocolate and spice. Great middle palate sweetness with well integrated French oak provides generous vanilla over tones and silky tannins.
This is impressively fruited and perfumed on the nose showing dried cherry, toasted spice, vanilla, cedar and smoked game characters, leading to a concentrated palate that's expansive and voluptuous. The wine offers seductive savoury nuances and flowing mouthfeel, finishing superbly long and velvety. At its best: now to 2028. Price: $100.00; Rating: 96 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
