Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for Revolution come from the most revered sub-region of McLaren Vale, known as Seaview. This sub-region is where the best reds to come out of McLaren Vale are grown. The vines are relatively young at 5 years, but due to the extreme lack of soil nutrients & carefully regulated deficit irrigation practices, the vines are already producing voluptuous, Flavor packed & rich fruit, perfect for Revolution. The vines are hand pruned and crop at around 3 tons per acre.
My Notes:

About Revolution:

This project is born of Ben Hammerschlag's relationship with the Oliver family and in particular, with winemaker Corrina Rayment, who naturally fits into the group of young and progressive winemakers that permeate the Epicurean Wines portfolio. Rayment is a progressive thinker and she’s willing to take risks. Her wines are designed to offer the best aspects of McLaren Vale (texture, suppleness and intensity) delivered at a reasonable price.
