An amazing depth of colour with inky red and purples with intense hues. Ripe raspberry fruit characters combined with varietal spice and hints of pepper are at the fore. The nose has a youthful aroma of red liquorice and sweet toasty oak, which is integrated into the richness of the wine. This wine has a warm, inviting and full-bodied palate, which is beautifully ripe & generous. It tastes of rich, sweet blackberry & raspberry fruits and the vanilla oak is complimentary to the chocolaty tannins. A superb length on the smooth, rounded finish is a testament to this well-made wine.
About This Wine
Lou Miranda Estate
Lou Miranda Estate is a family-owned boutique winery based in the Barossa Valley, South Australia.
Lou, his wife Val and their daughters Lisa and Victoria produce premium quality wines under the Leone and Lou Miranda Estate brands using fruit from their own Barossa Valley vineyards. Lou’s father used to say ‘You can only make great wine with great fruit’. This simple but effective philosophy is reflected in all that they do today, from our rigorous approach to vineyard management, consistency and discipline over fruit selection to hand-crafted winemaking practices.
In one way or another, the family has been working on these wines for more than seventy years. It started when our nonno, Francesco Miranda came to Australia from Italy in 1938. He arrived in Griffith, New South Wales and set about building his dream. His son Lou has spent a lifetime building on his father’s passion while adding his own unique style.
