South Australia is arguably one of the top shiraz-growing regions of the world. Within SA, the McLaren Vale is the most diverse and historic sub-region with vines dating back to the 1830's. The microclimates within McLaren Vale are what give Layer Cake Shiraz its complexity. For our Shiraz, we pull from vineyards all over McLaren Vale; from the full-clustered, sandy soiled blocks on the sea coast of Gulf St. Vincent, to the Terra Rosa based, tiny-berried wind- blown hills across the Vale. The vineyards are all within a few miles of each other, yet give us a broad array of flavors to blend into a complete wine. Each year we pull a small amount of fruit from tiny vineyards in Padthaway and Wrattanbully for added layers; combined they represent less than 10% of the blend.
Dark, dense and creamy, complex aromas of black plum, Bing cherry, blackberry and pepper merge with licorice, tobacco, mocha and dark chocolate. This is one inky
Shiraz; an explosion of dark, super ripe, wild blackberry, with a touch of cigar box finishing with a mélange of exotic spices. A pure fruit bomb…complete from attack through a long, lingering finish. Chefs will save this cake for themselves…
"This was not an easy vintage in Australia, but you would never know it from this wine. As one expects from any South Australian Shiraz, it has oodles of fruit, a big, thick, juicy mouthfeel, velvety tannins, and lots of crème de cassis, blackberry, peppery, and tar-like notes in a deep, full-bodied, lush style that should drink nicely for 3-4 years as well.
Keep in mind that what Jayson Woodbridge is doing is taking his winemaking team from Hundred Acre Vineyard, flying them around the world, and actually making these wines on site from top quality fruit. It is an innovative project, to say the least, but the proof is in the bottle, as they say, and at $15, readers are going to be exceptionally pleased with the quality of all three of these wines.
The Wine Advocate
"The name gives it away. This is a rich, super ripe wine that emphasizes it's plush texture, layering fig, blueberry, sweet oak and black pepper in a finish that lasts. A primary, drink it right now wine to open near steaks and charcoal."
Wine & Spirits
Layer Cake is a wine that was inspired by my Grandfather and Grandmother. Every Sunday, my Grandmother would bake a huge layer cake for dessert. My Grandfather would pour me a little glass of wine and place it at the table for me. He explained wine in terms of that cake. 'The vines,' he would
say, 'live in layers of soil just like the layers in Grandma"s cake; each layer bringing...Read More About Layer Cake
(seh-RAH/shee-RAHZ) It's a Smokin' Grape Syrah and Shiraz - same grape, different name. It's a popular and adept variety, growing in multiple regions and creating many different styles of wine.
