This is a blend of Shiraz and Cabernet, from a 5 Star Halliday producer. The blend has been created by winemaker Joseph Grilli and combines two distinct McLaren Vale regions. The first is the Clarendon sub-region, nestled amongst rolling hills, vistas of the sea and straddling the border of the Adelaide Hills. The soil and altitude combined with an intense viticultural regime results in a small crop of evenly ripened fruit, just one tonne per acre. This Shiraz is hand selected from a single block of low yielding vines at the pinnacle of the vineyard. 

The second is classic McLaren Vale, in the centre of the famed wine region. Deep, rich and loamy clay (you may hear the locals refer to it as “Bay of Biscay” soil) the vineyard produces a minimal yield of intensely flavoured Cabernet, helped along by warmer conditions that are tempered by a maritime clime.

The parcels of fruit are vinified in traditional open fermenters, gently pumped over and aged in American and French oak barrels after blending. The resulting wine is a graceful mouth filling style. Match this wine with a Sunday Roast or a Ribolitta soup over winter.
