The Shiraz offers dark plum fruits, mulberries and licorice with plenty of concentration, depth and velvety tannin. The Grenache adds a lovely lusciousness to the wine with raspberry, blueberry and floral notes adding prettiness. Both of the afore mentioned varieties also give a little white pepper character which has been accentuated in the cooler vintage and really acts as a point of interest. Finally, the Mourvedre provides a perception of elegance and restraint through its red fruits with a hint of dried herb and fine chalky tannin.
Easily matched with Entrecote & grilled pork chops but also worth trying with lamb and a classic pasta Bolognese!
The grapes used in this wine are mostly from very old bush vines from around the McLaren Vale region.
The wine is fermented in headed-down open fermenters. To get the right amount of colour and tannin extraction wader clad cellar hands foot tread the ferments. The skins are then separated via the traditional method of basket pressing then matured in barriques and large casks.
