The Heirloom Vineyards Alcala McLaren Vale Grenache Grenache 60% Touriga 25% Tempranillo 15% produced from our best McLaren Vale Vineyard whose clones and viticulture embody the very best in cutting edge but old school viticulture and winemaking. Hand tended vines, sorted bunch-by-bunch, naturally open fermented, basket pressed and stored in French and American oak barriques from bespoke coopers.
Wine can be a simple sip or a symphony of the senses, a moment of pleasure or an eternity of contemplation.
Grenache's perfumed, berried confectionary; Touriga's blood and wet concrete; and Temranillo's wild strawberry, plum skins, and tannins. Complex and finely etched with each grape variety sounding a clear voice, but also contributing to the pitch-perfect, sibling-like harmony. Texture and powdery tannins take over before bright fruits lift the back palate, signifying a wine that is pert and alive. A noble savage... a leprechaun... a flute by still water... a prophet in a cave... a swan... a newly foaled unicorn...
This extraordinary wine from McLaren Vale that will cellar well – 10, 20, 30+ or more years, but is so deliciously perfect now any argument for delayed gratification is almost academic.
