60% Shiraz, 40% Petite Sirah

"Very deep purple-black color with notes of creme de cassis, warm plums and dark chocolate with hints of licorice and fertile loam, the 2010 Reserve Red Wine is very full-bodied and voluptuous in the mouth, offering tons of ripe fruit layers that are supported by a medium to full level of grainy tannins and refreshing acid. It finishes long. Approachable now, it will drink to 2022+. " (WA)

Winery Notes:
Hammerschlag’s McLaren Vale vineyard consists of ironstone and clay over limestone and benefits from cool maritime breezes each afternoon. Upon securing this location, Hammerschlag got to work in the vineyard selecting 2 clones of Shiraz: 1654,which is very typical of South Australia and Tabhilk, sourced from the oldest winery in Victoria and more reminiscent of the northern Rhone. In addition to Shiraz, the vineyard is also planted with Petite Sirah, a varietal that is naturally higher in acid,tannin and color, thereby enhancing the wine’s mineral character and providing structure to the blend.
