Winemaking Notes

McLaren Vale delivers distinctive and delicious Shiraz characters.  Sourced from premium 20 year old McLaren Vale vines, open fermenters with a cultured yeast with 10 days on skins. A delicious blend of new and old oak for 12 months being 80% American and 20% French. 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 6-8 years.

Colour

Attractive bright red.

Nose

Alluring aromas of fresh berry and plum fruits.

Palate

The palate is complex with earthy spice characters and harmoniously integrated oak intertwines with spicy fine grained silky tannins.  This is a seriously concentrated and balanced Shiraz with exceptional palate length of luscious texture and full flavour. 

Comments

Awards

Gold Medal – Gilbert & Gaillard International Challenge 2020
Deeply coloured with brilliant ruby-red glints. Promising nose of nicely ripe dark fruits with asphalt and pepper notes. Powerful, rich, mouth-filling palate that is very gratifying and shows a fresh finish layered over very soft tannins. Drink with grilled meats.

Reviews

95 points (5 Stars) - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Offering terrific dark fruit richness together with seductive notes of cocoa, vanilla, cedar and olive, it's concentrated and superbly weighted on the palate, displaying sumptuous mouthfeel and silky tannins, leading to an expansive, plush finish. At its best: now to 2032.

94 points (5 Stars) – Stephen Read, Wine Matrix
The nose offers complex aromas of sweet dark berry fruit, along with vanilla, spice and cedary oak. The palate delivers tight clean tannin at the front, with layers of fruit and oak balanced by clean tight acid all together in harmony. Enjoy now or over the next 10 + years.
