Crafted in the McLaren Vale, South Australia.
This wine is a fine example of McLaren Vale Shiraz. Hand harvested and matured in new and seasoned French oak barriques for 16 months. The wine has a deep ruby colour, intense plum/raspberry aromas and plush velvety tannins that build on the palate to give a very long finish.
The stylish French oak adds subtle cedar and smoky notes that marry with the fruit flavours to create an appealing complexity in such a young wine. This wine is very enjoyable now but will reward patient cellaring for 10-20 years.
‘Ace of Trumps’ is a tribute to our family’s race horse, which won the Adelaide cup in 1874Passionfruit, citrus, cut grass and snow pea characters but toasty, spicy and textural too. Sauvignon Blanc grapes from two blocks in our Adelaide Hills vineyard were harvested by hand and whole bunch pressed.
Malo-lactic fermentation, regular lees-stirring and an additional four months in old French oak barrels are critical to building the wine’s texture, complexity and softness – and a distinctive house style.
The 2018 vintage conditions helped to produce excellent flavour development, striking complexity and refreshing acidity.
