        • Shiraz and McLaren Vale. A famous pairing. Are there others? The Royal Family and Corgis? Gin and Tonic? Bogart and Bacall? But why the connection?

          Pedigree and history: the variety has shown its suitability for so long to the regions maritime but warm climate, and old yet well-preserved soils, that its hard to imagine one without the other. Shiraz in McLaren Vale grows well, always ripens, and with correct vineyard management, produces wines of great depth, flavour and structure. A true Wine Brothers favourite!
        • "A core quality of good wine is consistency between nose and palate, and that’s what ‘The Rascal’ delivers. Richly lifted violets and fine French oak combine with fresh cracked pepper, spice, and lush fruit. Tremendous depth of flavour on the palate mirrors the aromatics, amplifying the spice and fruit volume. All framed tightly within a supple fine texture. While we love and respect the notion of single-vineyard wines, ‘The Rascal’ benefits from being a blend of several sites." - Hugh Hamilton, Winemaker
