Fermentation commenced naturally, it was hand plunged & tasted twice daily to assess flavour & colour extraction. After a gentle basket press, the wine was matured in a mixture of new & old French oak foudres, the smallest being 3500 litre, & a selection of 500l puncheons. Layers of cool blue and red fruit lift with layers of allspice & cardamom to entice, supported by a gentle oak creaminess, which progresses to the palate exhibiting a deep fruit weight kept bright, nervy, and fleshy and filed down nicely by fine and savoury tannin line. Sand & Stones may break my bones, but geology will never hurt me… Born of one of the most ancient and geologically diverse wine regions in the world, McLaren Vale, this wine is made from Australia’s most ubiquitous grape – Shiraz. With the aim that this Shiraz reflects our view of the region, we combine a famed dry grown Blewitt Springs deep sandy vineyard, and a younger more structured and fragrant parcel from the shallow old bedrock of our own Onkaparinga Rocks vineyard in the hope of a more modern, slender and youthful expression(more...)
