Wine Details







Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) This wine has a heady illusion of sweetness and confection, and after that lovely slender syrup establishes itself, the oozes of prune and black-berry emerge, and entwine with the dark chicory and juniper tannins and the faintest whiff of harness leather. All over the primary fruit and vegetation, it begins to prickle like summer, with smells of rain on hot sunbaked sandstone and rusty galvo, and explosives in the quarry.

Winemaker's Notes

"Our vineyard is in the coolest parts of mclaren vale, giving our low yields times to slowly accumulate concentrated powerful flavours of blackberry and plums, with hints of spice. The open fermenters and wild yeast allow maximum extraction and complexity with soft silky tannins " Â Â Â Â Â Â PETER FRASER, Winemaker • 93 Points/Editors Choice, Wine Enthusiast-June 2007 • Double Gold, Florida State Fair International Wine Competition-February 2007 • Double Gold, Fingerlakes Int'l Wine Competition-April 2007 • Exceptional, Dan Berger's read more...Vintage Experiences-August 2007 Region:100% McLaren Vale, 100% Estate Grown Varietal Composition:100% Shiraz Analysis:15.0% alcohol, pH 3.62, TA 0.65 g/100ml Maturation:18 months; 33% new, 33% one year old, 33% two years old; all 100% French oak barriques Production: 5,778 cases (hide)
