NEW VINTAGE RELEASE
Vibrant purple-red. The Shiraz, grown on loamy clay, contributes the dark fruit of blackberries and mulberries to the blend, whilst the hand-picked, old bush vine Grenache (grown on deep sand over clay) adds rosy floral 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.
* No animal products are used in the production of this wine.
Floral, powerful nose. The palate is substantial and comparatively firm, showing the majority shiraz component. A very bright, enjoyable wine. 4 1/2 stars.
Spicy cranberry aromas with chocolaty notes and an elegant palate with dark chocolaty fruit flavours laced with a nice line of acidity. 4 stars.
