Shingleback's UNEDITED Shiraz began as part of the regional initiative “McLaren Vale Scarce Earth” which was launched in 2011 with wines from the 2009 vintage, involving the release of selected single block McLaren Vale Shiraz wines which highlight the distinctive sites of the region.

After facing 3 separate tasting panels, the participating wines were chosen - the grapes must come from a single block, rather than single vineyard, the vines must be at least 10 years old & the winemaking style is one of minimal intervention to highlight the site expression.

Although the Scarce Earth programme was discontinued after the 2015 vintage, Shingleback continues to craft its very limited release, minimal oak influence Unedited Shiraz.
