This vineyard was planted in 2001 after extensive preparations including detailed soil mapping to allow optimal varietal and clone section and vineyard layout. The vineyard is mostly south facing, which helps to keep the microclimate relatively mild in summer and the fruit and vines protected from the summer’s hot northerly winds. The vineyard is in outstanding condition, with remarkable uniformity across the property resulting in consistent low yields of icon quality fruit.


ACE OF TRUMPS
SHIRAZ
MCLAREN VALE | 2017

Harvest Date 20/03/2017

This wine is a fine example of McLaren Vale Shiraz. Hand harvested and matured in new and seasoned fine French oak barriques for 16 months. The wine has a deep ruby colour, intense plum/raspberry aromas and plush velvety tannins that build on the palate to give a very long finish. The stylish French oak adds subtle cedar and smoky notes that marry with the fruit flavours to create an appealing complexity in such a young wine. This wine is very enjoyable now but will reward patient cellaring for 10-20 years.

GRAND VIN CABERNET SAUVIGNON
MCLAREN VALE | 2017

Harvest Date 20/03/2017

This elevated and south facing vineyard in the Seaview sub-region of McLaren Vale has a reputation of producing very stylish and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon wines. The section of the vineyard chosen for this wine was hand manicured from pruning through shoot and fruit thinning to produce a very small but very special parcel of grapes. After hand harvesting, crushing and fermentation the wine was matured in seasoned and new French oak barriques and hogsheads for 16 months. Further barrel selection has resulted in the finest expression of McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon.

Very deep ruby with intense aromas of spicy black currants, attractive mouth coating tannins, mid palate fruit intensity and impressive oak notes all describe the great structure that this wine has now and will carry into the future as it ages very, very slowly, which is typical of great Cabernet Sauvignon. This outstanding wine is lovely to drink now but will cellar for 10-20+ years to come
