Cracka Review

This juicy red blend from Ingoldby is just the thing for that BBQ you have coming up at your place this weekend, and it will go down a treat, too! Smells of raspberries, red cherries, pepper spice and mocha lift from the glass, whilst the palate is fuller-bodied and sweetly-fruited, with smooth, friendly tannins, poised acidity, and a soft, jubey fruity finish. Did we mention it's good value!

Winemaker's Notes

Jim Ingoldby established Ingoldby Wines in McLaren Vale in 1973. Since that time, Ingoldby Wines have made a succession of award-winning wines in the traditional McLaren Vale style. The region is renowned for producing concentrated, full flavoured fruit, delivering red wines that are approachable in their youth with the ability to improve with time in the cellar.

Individual vineyard parcels were fermented separately in various fermenters. The parcels were pressed off skins once fermentation was completed with Shiraz parcels matured in seasoned oak to bring complexity to the blend, while the Grenache components remained in tank to bring freshness and fruit lift. Prior to blending, each component was reassessed to ensure that the right balance of lifted fruit and complexity was achieved.

Appearance: Vibrant cherry red.

Nose: The bouquet of this wine has lovely aromas of raspberry and chocolate, with a hint of spice.

Palate: Luscious with soft textural tannins and lingering cherry stone flavours. The smaller Shiraz component of this wine adds mouth feel and complexity while still allowing the dominant Grenache portion to display it’s vibrant confectionary characters.

Cellaring: Made for early drinking.

Alcohol: 14.5%

Ingoldby Grenache Shiraz

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
A light but vivid hue heralds a wine that was not blindsided by the vintage; it has an array of predominantly red fruits, but licorice and dark chocolate, and some spiced plum, also make their appearance; well-handled oak and tannins complete the picture.
