Grapes for "The Gaffer" have been sourced from vineyards from a variety of McLaren Vale's best sites. A tried and tested area for growing full-flavored Shiraz, McLaren Vale has almost the perfect climate for grape growing: warm summers, low humidity, good winter rain and long autumns to ensure that grapes achieve ripeness, flavor, acid and balance.
"Fresh and vibrant, this complex red shows mineral and grain accents to its rich blackberry and cherry flavors, all coming together on the refined finish. Drink now through 2018. 2000 cases made."

Finishes sweet, with very good cut and spicy persistence. "
