2020 Estate Blend Shiraz Grenache
The first release of our Estate Blend, using only grapes grown on our McLaren Vale vineyard. The 2020 Vintage is a blend of Shiraz (54%) from our Manor block and Grenache (46%) hand-picked from the bush vines, located just a few steps from our winery. The shiraz from the Manor block has lovely lifted red and blue fruits which works beautifully with the juicy plum and spice from the Grenache to create a delicious medium bodied wine. Aged in seasoned French oak for 9 months it’s a modern version of a classic McLaren Vale blend. Less than 300 dozen produced.

"While the inaugural release, this is exceptional. More top Côtes du Rhône than SA. A 54/46% shiraz/grenache blend, all hand picked; the extraction more courageous than in the past, at least with comparative wines. Neutral oak. Moreish tannins, silty of feel with a gentle grittiness corralling blue-fruit allusions, beef bouillon, thyme, lavender and a smear of tapenade across the bolshy finish. Umami aplenty. Savouriness, the modus. Really very good, although the acidity could be toned." Ned Goodwin MW
