    Winemaker Notes

    The Hattrick is a blend of 47% Shiraz, 46% Grenache and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced primarily from the Tony DeLisio managed Mark Woods Old Estate just north of the township of McLaren Vale. To supplement the best of his own fruit, and to enhance complexity, Tony sourced carefully managed, select parcels from a small clutch of vineyards with some of the best old vines in the region. Each varietal was individually open-vat fermented and basket pressed before going to barrel. The Shiraz and Cabernet components saw mainly new French with some American Oak. Progressively, as the wines developed, particular barrels were earmarked for The Hattrick based on what they could contribute to the overall style. The Grenache was beautifully soft and aromatic overall while the Shiraz showed power and length and the Cabernet a pure varietal structure with character and firmness. Bench trials led to the final blend decision after which minor additions were made subject to the way the flavours melded in the finished form.

    Provence

    More than just a European vacation hotspot and the rosé capital of the world, Provence is a coastal, southeastern appellation of France increasingly producing interesting wines of all colors. The warm, breezy Mediterranean climate is ideal for grape growing and the diverse terrain and soil types allow for a variety of wine styles within the region. Adjacent to the Rhône Valley, Provence shares some characteristics with its northwestern neighbor—namely, the fierce Mistral wind and the plentiful wild herbs (such as rosemary, lavender, juniper, and thyme) known as ‘garrigue.’ The largest appellation here is Côtes de Provence, followed by Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence.

    Provence is internationally acclaimed for its dry, refreshing, pale-hued rosé wines which make up the vast majority of the region’s production. These are typically blends, often dominated by Mourvèdre and supplemented by Grenache, Cinsault, Tibouren, and other varieties. A small amount of full-bodied, herbal white wine is made here—particularly from the Cassis appellation, from Clairette and Marsanne. Roussane, Sémillon, Ugni Blanc, and Vermentino (known locally as Rolle) are also used for white wine throughout Provence. Perhaps the most interesting wines of the region, however, are the red wines of Bandol. Predominantly Mourvèdre, these are powerful, structured, and ageworthy wines with lush berry fruit and savory characteristics of earth and spice.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
