This is super juice! It is a quintessential McLaren Vale Shiraz taken from a selection of some of our best Shiraz parcels.
|Winemaker's Notes||An assembly of excellent parcels sourced from a broad cross-section of McLaren Vale to create a regional expression of Shiraz. In contrast to the Black Bloods that highlight sub-regions, Ancient Earth aims to target the highest quality subregions across the entire area and blend them into a seamless representation of what the Vale does best.|
|Drink||Cellaring is a requirement here – big wines take time. Leave this one to mature for 2-8 years.|
|Bouquet||Blackberry and briar rose laid over tar, thyme, and iron. Violets, vanilla, liquorice, and roast beets.|
|Palate||The structural palate showcases a selection of spice; caraway, cumin, cardamom, and black pepper. Plush, earthy, and unearthly.|
|Food Match||Garlic butter roast portobello mushrooms with polenta, or Herb-crusted top loin beef roast with all the sides.|
|Analysis||TA: 6.6 g/L, pH: 3.55, ALC: 15.1%, RS: <2.5g/L|
