Winemaker Notes

Sourced from Hammerschlag's McLaren Vale vineyard which is a great site for Shiraz, the vineyard is also planted with Petite Sirah. A varietal that is naturally higher in acid, tannin and color, thereby enhancing the wine's mineral character and providing structure to the blend.

Blend: 85% Shiraz, 15% Petite Sirah

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of Shiraz and Petite Sirah, the very deep purple-black colored 2012 Reserve Red Wine exudes aromas of warm blackberries and crushed black plums with hints of mulberries, black pepper, tree bark and charcoal. Very big and full-bodied, it fills the palate with warm berry preserves flavors and just a touch of pepper that is offset by chewy tannins and up-lifting acidity. It finishes just a little hot.

Flegenheimer Bros, Australia
Benjamin Hammerschlag’s family arrived in the States from Germany in the late 1800’s. His great-great grandfather married a young girl by the name of Flegenheimer and joined her family’s business. The Flegenheimers were New York Wine Merchants - in their day a well-known, thriving, pre-Prohibition family enterprise with several locations throughout the greater New York area. From Brooklyn to Yonkers, Hoboken to Newark, Flegenheimer Bros dealt exclusively in quality beverages. The business was established in 1876 and was still flourishing in 1919 when the manufacture, transportation and sale of alcoholic beverages was outlawed in the United States. Three generations later, the youngest Hammerschlag has decided to resurrect this heritage with a reserve red from his high altitude, McLaren Vale property, giving new life to the legacy that began long before he too chose wine as his passion and profession.

McLaren Vale Wine

South Australia

View all products

Known for opulent red wines with intense power and concentration, McLaren Vale is home to perhaps the most “classic” style of Australian Shiraz. Vinified on its own or in Rhône Blends, these hot-climate wines are deeply colored and high in extract with signature hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is also produced in a similar style.

Whites, often made from Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc tend to be opulent and full of tropical, stone and citrus fruit.

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 enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. 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.
