McLaren Vale is one of the most geologically diverse wine regions in the world and Grenache is one of the most widely planted red wine grape varieties in the world.  By combining these two we have created a unique expression of the varietal.  2012 was regarded as one of the finest vintages from McLaren Vale.

Colour

Deep red with purple hues.

Nose

Fresh cherries and plums.

Palate

Medium bodied with intense, attractive tannins and concentrated dark berry characters.  The age characters are starting to emerge.  Decanting this wine is recommended to release the full range of characters.

Comments

Allegiance Wines has sourced this exceptional parcel of Grenache from the premium Australian wine region of McLaren Vale.  This wine is an excellent example of the outstanding results possible, when an allegiance between growers and winemakers creates their best expression of the varietal and vintage.  Cellar potential of 8+ years.

McLaren Vale Reds 2012 - 10/10 – Halliday Vintage Rating

Dedicated to those who give their all for the community

John Savage (OAM) was a local legend. Born in Ballina NSW in 1932, he dedicated his life to education as a teacher for 4 decades.  To most that would be enough, however John’s amazing work ethic saw him donate his time and talents to dozens of local, regional, state and national volunteer organisations.  When John passed in 2016, our community lost a local icon.  His humble approach meant that the enormity of his contributions only came to light upon reflection.  My family was blessed to have John and his beautiful wife Lida as our neighbours for over 50 years.  John will be missed by not only the family and friends who loved him, but the community to which he gave so much.

This is the perfect wine to raise a toast to a man who has set an example for us all to aspire to.  One to be savoured in its greatness and rarity – just like the man himself.
