Winemaker Notes

There are very few Australian wines that can boast 4 varieties deliberately blended together to achieve a wine that tastes so complete. This blend of Shiraz, Grenache, Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon has good palate weight and structure without any hint of aggressive young tannins as they have been balanced out by the Grenache and Merlot. This wine is formulated to allow for early drinking however the addition of the Shiraz and in particular the Cabernet gives the wine focus, length and ageability. Aptly named Quarterback as the 4 varieties are in approximately equal proportions. This is blending at its wonderfully, challenging best.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Last year I was shown four De Lisio wines, this year only the entry level 2007 Quarterback, a sign of the times in a microcosm. The wine is a blend of 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 26% Shiraz, and 17% Grenache aged for 15 months in seasoned French oak. Dark ruby in color, it delivers an enticing bouquet of floral notes, spice box, black cherry, and blueberry. Full-bodied, ripe, and sweetly-fruited on the palate, it manages to retain a sense of elegance. This lengthy blend has enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years but there is no reason to delay your gratification. It is also an excellent value.

During a visit to Australia in June of 2004 Benjamin Hammerschlag was assessing the portfolio of another young winemaker in McLaren Vale. During the tasting, the parcels that stood out time and again had come from Tony De Lisio’s vineyards. The impression stuck and yielded an extensive tasting of De Lisio’s wines. Consistently impressed, Hammerschlag approached De Lisio and discovered an Italian immigrant with 30 years of experience in McLaren Vale. De Lisio’s talents lie in the vineyard and his connection to other immigrants in the region give him access to some of the best fruit in the district which happen to meet the classic Epicurean Wines criteria; phenomenal raw materials transformed into wines that are jam-packed with intensity.
