McLaren Vale, with its unique terrains and coastal influence, is renowned for its diversity and character. Shiraz is the variety that has best expressed the region’s virtues and beauty to the world.
Boisterous mulberry and aniseed flavours are further enhanced by an opulently textured palate.
- Growing Conditions
Heavy winter rains filled the soil profile and set the vines up well for the season. Ideal growing conditions through spring encouraged a healthy, balanced canopy. A comparatively cool and dry February and March allowed the vines to ripen at a steady pace, developing beautifully supple tannins at moderate sugar levels whilst retaining bright fruit flavours.
- Food Pairing
Porchetta cooked over charcoal with fresh ciabatta and coleslaw
