All wine comes in at the mouth and love comes in at the eye; that’s all we shall know for truth before we grow old and die

'"McLaren Vale Shiraz has been a regular feature of ourBest in Show and Platinum selections in recent years(as it is again this year), but this distinctive GI to the south of the Adelaide Hills is also celebrated for its astonishing patrimony of old-vine Grenache. Our judges pounced on this Grenache from the excellent2022 vintage (dryer in McLaren Vale than elsewhere).A translucent black-purple in colour, this wine has beautiful aromas of sweet, beguiling fruits (strawberry and cherry) without any sticky jamminess; instead those fruits have a fresh, almost perfumed sheen. The wine is dark, vigorous and lively, despite its relatively low acidity; deftly extracted tannins and the innate vigour and tenacity of the fruits deliver that freshness.Fine raw materials and the best of contemporaryAustralian winemaking come together here."Buy Now
