85% grenache, 10% mourvedre, 5% shiraz, open-fermented, 10 days on skins, matured for 10 months in French oak (20% new). No surprise that the mouthfeel and flavours should be different to those of McLaren Vale. It's more precise in terms of its flavour and the grenache is less warm - you might assume from the taste that shiraz is the dominant part. It carries its alcohol extraordinarily well."
