Vintage 2017
Region MCLAREN VALE
Winemaker's Notes Church Vineyard, so named for the old Bethany Church that it surrounds on three sides, was once the bed of an ancient river. Whatever the flows in the past may have been, this river now trickles quietly along the base of the block. You can taste it’s mark in the generosity of fruit that typifies this wine.
Drink Fresh and crunchy, or deeper and more nuanced – it’s up to you. 2-8 years.
Bouquet Punchy, lifted, raspberry, red liquorice and cherries backed with a subtle salami meatiness, sweet tobacco, and milk chocolate.
Palate A big, sweet fruit palate. Loaded with fresh red fruits, raspberry, cherries, and rose. The medium weight and fine texture leaves the wine soft, plush, and generous.
