55% Cinsault, 21% Grenache, 16% Shiraz, & 8% Mourvedre. A light, fun expression of the vintage that was. Cinsault's light fragrance & crunchy acidity, with the deeper, fuller and spicier expression of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre to round it out. From the Ahrens's Vine Vale property (Cert. BD). Sand over clay w a touch of Ebenezer fruit from the Hoffmann vineyard.
Steve sources fruit from vineyards across South Australia (namely Barossa, Eden Valley and Adelaide Hills) that are farmed organically or sustainably managed. The belief is that healthy vineyards make better wines. Given his particularities with their selection, Steve is getting to know his vineyards and understanding how to do the sites justice in the winery.
