One of the biggest challenges with producing organic wines is that they cost more to make, with the extra weeding from no chemical herbicides costing a fortune alone. Yet here Mike and the Gemtree team have served up a classic McLaren Vale red at a sensational price. Handpicked from vines that were not only farmed organically but biodynamically too, this utterly decadent McLaren Vale Shiraz has a depth of flavour that is almost limitless - it goes on and on (and on). Matured for more than 12 months in barrel and bottled unfined and unfiltered, it has classic South Aussie Shiraz written all over it, with that delicious chocolatey richness that Mike packs into each of his wines.
There is a chance that you've had previous vintages of this superb Vale red, in which case you'll know what a standout wine it is. A seriously full-bodied, seriously powerful red that could compete with the absolute cream of the region.
Palate:Generous dark fruits abounds on the palate with fine tannins and balanced acidity, which leads to a lengthy finish.
Closure: Screw Cap
