The wine will best match full flavoured meals, such as tender beef, or rich vegetarian dishes. Perfect with pasta.
13 months maturation in predominantly French oak with some American Oak. 20% New French oak, 10% new American oak, balance 2-6 year old barrels.
Bright, full, rich red.
Dark brooding black olive and plum nose augmented with vanilla and hints of nutmeg through aging in French and American oak.
Full bodied, richly flavoured palate showing attractive persistence of flavour with a round mid palate structure and a backbone of fine grained, silky tannins.
The focus in producing this wine is to have vibrancy of fruit on the nose and palate with a tight structure and attractive mouth filling roundness. The fruit was all grown on our Estate between the McLaren Vale and Willunga townships. Following fermentation on skins, the components were pressed before dryness and allowed some oak fermentation. On the completion of malo-lactic fermentation, the wine was 're-worked' and returned to oak for further maturation. Richard Hamilton is the fifth generation of his family to be involved in wine production in Australia. The wine is crafted to present excellent fruit definition and length and typifies both the Shiraz fruit and the McLaren Vale region. 2017 celebrated 180 years of involvement in the Australian wine industry by the Hamilton family.
