Vortex Red Blend 2016

At the heart of this wine are the vines of the Gordon and Bitner block, positioned between the sea and the hills in the famed McLaren Vale wine region. Each vintage starts with the careful hand spur pruning of the gnarly vines, deeply rooted in calcium rich, ancient clay loam soils. 

At blending the Tempranillo adds fragrant red fruit highlights and firm structural elements. The Grenache enhances the juicy fruit mid palate and adds earthy savoury base notes to the cassis and dark chocolate of the Cabernet Sauvignon.

Gordon & Bitner Block Cabernet Sauvignon

Gentle hand working of the skins in small, 5 tonne open fermenters and traditional winemaking practices protect and nurture the unique qualities of the terroir. Very fine grained French oak hogsheads are used to allow a long, slow maturation of the wine and subtle oak integration. A combination of new and 1-5 year old oak barrels, crafted by select coopers to our requirements, are used to create nuances and diversity of flavour. When maturation & oak integration are perfect, individual barrels are selected and blended to create this intensely varietal McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon.

Black Bubbles

Deep garnet in colour with vibrant magenta bubbles. Aromas of concentrated blackcurrant with hints of liquorice, spice and dark cherries. Creamy bubbles and luscious sweetness envelop the plump blackberry mid palate, which is enhanced with hints of savoury development. The long sweet fruit finish is balanced with fine tannin and acidity.

This is a non-vintaged wine blended from a number of years of Shiraz to create complexity and consistency in the style.
