Bright lemon in colour with pronounced aromas of fresh lemon and lime with hints of grapefruit and orange blossom. Definitive lime citrus aromas, famously recognised with Eden Valley. These fresh citrus characters are further expressed on the palate with hints of green apple. Deep roots…
This Heirloom Vineyards King’s Garden McLaren Vale Shiraz Grenache Mourvèdre was crafted with grapes from hand tended vines, sorted bunch by bunch, naturally open fermented with regular hand plunging and gentle pumping over to extract colour, flavour, and tannin. Aged in some new but mainly 3 and 4 year old French and American oak Hogsheads for 16 months.
Dark and dense and very formally attired, this classic Rhone blend is confidently and powerfully at home in McLaren Vale. The combined grape varieties throw heady aromas of earth, plums, spice, meatiness, white chocolate and pink peppercorns.
Made from low cropped, hand harvested premium fruit taken from a select vineyard in the Upper Yarra Valley. Aged in French oak barriques for 6 months.
Quite simply one of the finest examples of Australian Pinot Noir we have come across. The dry grown grapes lay within the Piccadilly Valley region of the Adelaide Hills below the top of Mount Lofty. Resulting in the perfect cool climate environment for Pinot Noir to thrive. Add to this the mastery of Adelaide Hills pioneering head winemaker Stephen George and we are left with what legendary Australian wine writer James Halliday refers to as “the one Grand Cru of the state”.
