Rated 93 points by James Halliday: "Dense rich red-purple; super savoury with smoked meats, toasty oak, earthy with enough cocoa and ripe fruit plus a touch of fruit cake. Expansive tannins matched to the full-bodied palate."

100% Shiraz




Casalinga Salumi


Matured for 20 months in 100% French oak hogsheads

Saturnine black fruits, licorice and bitter chocolate


Generous, almost opulent, grumbling with concentration and power, burbles of licorice and bitter chocolate, swirls of ripe tannins. A classic McLaren Vale style, a hedonic delight.


Each individual block on this vineyard is distinctive and charismatic due to its expressive geology and unique meso-climate. At our winery vineyard we are fortunate to be the custodians of one of the most unique and inspiring vineyard sites in McLaren Vale. The picturesque undulating hills and ancient geological formations are enhanced by our elevation, as the site perfectly capitalises on the cleansing coastal influence. Gentle and patient winemaking is preferred to ensure that the wine expresses the unique site characters. The hand harvested grapes were gently crushed, fermented in an open fermenter and hand plunged to facilitate subtle tannin extraction. After 10 days on skins the fermenter was basket pressed and the free run and pressing fractions were combined. The wine was then aged for 20 months in 100% French oak. The proportion of new oak was kept low to encourage the continued expression of the characters that are exclusive to the vineyard site. There were no additions of any fining agents or tannins and the wine was not filtered prior to bottling. Below average winter rainfall resulted in a early commencement to the growing season. A warmer than average summer, with no extended periods of extreme heat, resulted in a condensed vintage. Vibrant fruit flavours and acidity were still prevalent and the resultant wines were both varietal and textural.
