From selected vineyards around McLaren Vale this wine shows the great synergy these varieties have for each other. The dark fruits and chocolate notes of Shiraz, with the red fruits and spice of Grenache are complemented by the floralness and delicacy of Touriga.
All varieties are picked and vinified separately. Fermentation takes place in open fermenters with regular pump overs. 20% whole bunches are incorporated in the Grenache component. After fermentation is complete the different wines are basket pressed to new French oak (40%), 2 year old French (35%) and seasoned French and American oak (35%) for 18 months. Each batch is carefully barrel selected, blended and bottled.
A very pretty nose of red fruits with delicate floral elements supported by creamy oak.
This wine is all about juicy and vibrant red fruits, which are present in a big way. It’s finely structured with a pleasing acid backbone. Ready to drink now but patient cellaring will reward.
