ANCIENT EARTH SHIRAZ 2013

Appearance: Deep purple/black

NoseThe bouquet is fragrant with spicy fruit, and shows notes of raspberry. You will find a hint of toast from French oak barriques.

PalateOn the palate, the wine is rich & spicy with chocolatey depth. Once again, there is toast and spice from oak; lingering blackberry fruit with pleasantly gritty tannins.

Food Pairing: Garlic butter roast portobello mushrooms with polenta, or Herb-crusted top loin beef roast with all the sides.

About the wineMcLaren Vale has some of the most variable, ancient and weathered soils on the planet. It is for this reason behind the name ‘Ancient Earth’. It is a single-vineyard Shiraz from the beautiful sweep of vines immediately to the south of Hugh Hamilton's Cellar Door. It is a quintessential McLaren Vale Shiraz taken from a selection of some of our best Shiraz parcels. It’s aptly named as it hails from some of
the oldest geology of any wine region in the world
