The wine has an effortless opulence about it. An abundance of rich and vibrant black and blue fruits are obvious in the aroma and palate. Beneath these layers of juicy fruit there is an undercurrent of chocolate, fine oak and beautiful tannins.
Dry weather conditions throughout the spring and summer months of 2019 resulted in careful management by growers, alleviating the onset of stress in most vineyards. During Winter and Spring, McLaren Vale recorded its lowest ever rainfall on record. Over the Summer the region experienced little rainfall. Overall disease levels remained low due to the dry and warm, windy conditions. However, in late January there was considerable rainfall which served to freshen up the vineyards and provide good ground moisture through the final stages of ripening. February and March were cool and extended the ripening for some sites into early April Shiraz at this early stage looks to be the star of the vintage with very low crops and smallish berry size giving very concentrated flavours.
Harvested in late March. Fruit was destemmed and fermented in static fermenters with regular pumping over. 12 months in a mix of old and new French oak barrels.
McLaren Vale is one of the great and oldest names of Australian wine. The birthplace of wine in South Australia, it lies just south of the capital city of Adelaide and offers a multiplicity of soils which bask under a Mediterranean climate. The cooling effect from the ocean creates substantial meso-climate variation. Exposure to or protection from ocean influence dictates success of varieties planted.
