Tasting notes from 2014 Vintage
This White Labels Shiraz from our family vineyard is an elegant example of McLaren Vale€™sÂ flagship varietal, opulent and deep yet succulently savoury. Lifted blueberry and cassis flavoursÂ are interwoven with rich mocha, fragrant star anise and our hallmark earthy undertones. SoftÂ smoky, meaty notes add further complexity to the wine and balance the well-integratedÂ tannins.
All fruit for our reds comes from our stunning 64 acre vineyard, located at the bottom ofÂ McLaren Vale, just 2km away from the coast of the Gulf St Vincent. The steep southerlyÂ aspect protects the vines from the intense afternoon sun and allows the entire vineyard toÂ enjoy the cooling sea breeze that comes in from the south west. With one of the coolestÂ vineyard sites in the Vale we are able to produce elegant wines that balance rich primary fruitÂ flavours with the characteristic earthiness and minerality associated with the region. The vineyards are planted exclusively with Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes €“ our sole objective is to produce the best possible wines that reflect our unique vineyard site.
At flavour and tannin ripeness, the grapes were harvested and then crushed to openÂ fermenters. After 8 gentle days on skins the free run fraction was run off, and the skins wereÂ carefully pressed. The free run and pressing fractions were then combined. After 24 hours theÂ wine was racked to a mixture of French oak barrels and tanks, where it was matured for 18Â
