Local Heroes Shiraz Grenache 2018

Award Winner

Tasting Note

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.
