Winemaker Notes

The 2008 vintage continues a remarkably strong decade of harvests in Mclaren Vale, joining 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2006. An almost perfect growing season paved the way for a remarkably strong vintage where all the strongest parcels of fruit were picked in ideal conditions. The resultant wine has great concentration and flavour yet continues with the Gemtree trademark of fine acid and tannin lines.

Color: Purple, red with black hues. Nose: Red cherry, cloves, violets, 100% cacao dark chocolate, sweet vanilla, black pepper and blueberries.

Palate: A multi layered generous and hugely complex wine. The dark chocolate and red berries flow richly onto the palate combining with complex savoury oak that paves the way for a seamless finish. The highlight of this wine is the persistence which we attribute to the balance of flavour, acid and tannin.

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A viticultural wine at its best. Hands off winemaking, purity of fruit, unfined, unfiltered, the raw gem, the uncut version. The 2008 Uncut Shiraz spent 16 months in 100% new, predominantly French oak before bottling without fining or filtration. Captivating aromas of sandalwood, smoked meat, incense, lavender, blueberry, and chocolate lead to a layered, full-bodied, succulent Shiraz with excellent grip and length. Enjoy this pleasure-bent effort over the next 8-10 years.

Gemtree Vineyards Winery Image
The Gemtree Vineyards brand was launched in 1998 and is the logical extension for the Buttery family’s involvement in viticulture & winemaking over the last 30 years. Paul and Jill Buttery purchased their first vineyard on Tatachilla Road, McLaren Vale in 1980, following many years in the liquor retailing business and in 1991 they acquired a 140 acre property, Gemtree, in McLaren Flat. Family plantings now total some 330 acres and this is recognised as one of the largest private holdings in McLaren Vale.

McLaren Vale Wine

South Australia, 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 with Grenache and Mourvèdre, 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.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Blends of Southern Rhône, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
