Whole berries open fermented and then matured in French oak, 20% of which was new. This is a big and opulent wine, packed with flavour. This opens with a dusting of cocoa powder, is packed to the gunnels with deep, dark, brooding black fruits, and finishes with plenty of cedary goodness.

Finniss River is part of the Fleurieu Peninsula. It is quite close to McLaren Vale and also runs alongside the south-eastern shoulder of the Adelaide Hills. Climatically it is a little cooler than the McLaren Vale, being hot during the middle of the day but quite cool in the evening as the Southern Ocean sends cold air in. As a result the growing cycle is longer than most other regions in Australia which gives the region the ability to present fruit with exceptional concentration, colour, brightness and complexity. The Finniss River vineyard was originally established by the Hickinbotham family and has supplied fruit to Orlando for 19 consecutive vintages. They use sheep to mow their lawns and practice mimimal chemical spraying.
