The fruit for this wine is grown in the foothills of the Adelaide range as you leave the beach side town of McLaren Vale. The sandy loam soils rise and
gently face the west, allowing the vines to soak up the warm afternoon rays of the sun. The cooling evening breezes, which flow from the sea up the valley floor, give the vines relief during the summer
nights and allow steady maturation of the berries while preserving elegance and natural acidity.
This medium to full-bodied Shiraz displays upfront cherry and licorice aromas and secondary spicy oak so characteristic of McLaren Vale Shiraz. The full palate shows more luscious ripe berry fruit, with complexity provided by soft mouth filling tannins. The freshness shows potential for aging, but the softness allows enjoyment now.
