Crimson Monster creates monstrously rich and full bodied wines sourced from lowyielding, established vineyards located in some of South Australia’s finest regions such as McLaren Vale and Coonawarra. Thick gnarled old vines produce tiny berries of incredible intensity that is harnessed by careful winemaking and partial maturation in large seasoned oak barrels to deliver wonderfully approachable, opulent and mouth-coating flavours.
Get on board immediately.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "This is instantly appealing on the nose with black/blueberry, rich floral, almond and warm spice aromas, followed by a generously expressed palate delivering fleshy texture and finely pitched tannins. Upfront and expressive, making it highly enjoyable."
The winery writes "This is an intense red wine jam-packed with dark and red berry flavours. Big fruit character from tiny berries of older vines deliver blackberry, plum flavours with vanilla, milk chocolate and fresh leather on the palate. The mouth-feel is soft and cuddly with velvety tannins and a long finish. Pair with steak."
