McLaren Vale Shiraz 2020

This Heirloom Vineyards Shiraz was sourced from our neighbours the McMurtrie Family’s extraordinary and low yielding old vines, just adjacent to the Salopian Inn, where Ross McMurtrie, Vigneron was born. Hand tended vines, sorted bunch by bunch, naturally open fermented, with regular hand plunging and gentle pumping over to extract colour, flavour and tannin. Aged in some new but mainly 3 and 4 year one-year old French and Bulgarian oak barriques for 16 months.

Shiraz can be a simple sip or a symphony of the senses, a moment of pleasure or an eternity of contemplation. Only the poet can know, so stop thinking and surrender.

This wine is suitable for vegans.
