Magenta red. The Shiraz, grown on loamy clay, contributes blackberry, mulberry and spice to the blend, whilst the hand-picked, old bush vine Grenache (grown on deep sand over clay) adds a potpourri of perfumed roses and savoury notes. Small batch open fermentation and maturation in older oak ensures the proven synergy of these two, equally matched, McLaren Vale Local Heroes

“The blend percentages are irrelevant because the flavour and balance are so good. You come back for the second sip before you’ve had time to think about it. Blackberry and cherries lead the discussion, but the final judgement is delivered by delicious acidity that freshens the finish and aftertaste.– 96 Points & Top 100 Wines of 2018 James Halliday
