Background:

The 2009 vintage in McLaren Vale began with a 13 day heat wave in late January early February. This affected veraison, slowing down or stooping colour development for more than a week. The Vasarelli vineyard is generally a later ripening one and as such achieved excellent quality fruit - smaller than average berry size and moderate yields gave berries of concentrated colour, fruit flavour and natural ripe tanninsPasquale's selection is made from the very best parcels of fruit off the oldest vines, the blends change slightly each vintage but it is always chosen from the best barrels of wine.Blending was carried out in June 2010
