McLaren Vale

ALC: 14.5%

Some things work best with minimal intervention. A decent steak. Don’t mess with it. Sunday mornings. Do not disturb. Oh, and this shiraz. Millennium plantings on the 1871 vineyard. Extra elevated Blewitt Springs location lends a neat natural acidity and freshness. Rich, elegant, dark fruits. Spicy and luscious. Mmmm.

 

Say ‘limited amounts of easy drinking, handcrafted McLaren Vale wine’, and you’ve got our attention. Say it’s made by Andrew ‘Ox’ Hardy, and we’re hooked. Known nearly as much for his elegant pink shirts as his elegant winemaking style, Andrew’s minimalist winemaking philosophy has been passed down and perfected over five generations. With an 1871 block on his hands, Andrew’s not afraid to experiment with the best of the old and the new. Just how we like it.

FROM THE WINEMAKER

“Following harvest, the fruit was destemmed and crushed into Potter heading-down board fermenters. The must was inoculated with a chosen yeast strain and, once per day, the fermenting juice was drained to another tank, before being pumped back, re-floating the cap of skins, gently extracting colour, tannin and flavour. The wine was drained off and the skins bag-pressed before the combined wine was transferred to French Oak - second fill barriques and three new hogsheads. The wine spent eighteen months maturating in oak before bottling with minimal filtration.”

FOOD MATCH

Proudly easy drinking. Soft and never too overpowering, this wine is flexible when it comes to grub. In short, it's perfect for lunchtime. So gather the crowd of usual suspects, spark up the BBQ, and go wild.

SCORES / RATINGS

JH 94 Points, Vintage 2016 "This is from the right side of the family blanket, and not inclined to take a step backwards. Its blackberry, plum and dark chocolate flavours are accompanied by masculine tannins, made for a winter's day and roasted ox." - James Halliday
