Dune The Empty Quarter Red Blend 2021

$28.00
You can have 2 out of 3. Power, fragrance and balance. Actually, this wine manages all 3, a fresh, red fruit and floral aromatics lead to a palate which is both crunchy yet smooth and laden with mulberry, cherries, marzipan, vanilla, cured meats and white pepper. A stunner!

Dune wines are made from the Desert Sands vineyard in Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale which is Organic in conversion. The vineyard is located 15 kms inland and features deep, free draining sandy soils over yellow clay. The vineyard is not fertilised and instead receives both organic compost and mulch to improve soil structure and add organic matter to the soils. Crop levels are small, resulting in more concentrated wines. Native grasses are encouraged to grow within the vine row and kangaroos and other wild life are a common sight.

Less than 40km south of Adelaide, McLaren Vale is another one of South Australia's renowned Shiraz producers, accounting for roughly 50% of grapes crushed annually. The climate is markedly different from the Barossa, being much more Mediterranean with four clear seasons and higher rainfalls. McLaren Vale reds reflect this, showing deep complexity and power along with the ability to cellar for decades. While Shiraz grabs the most attention, chocolate-rich Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays and Viogniers are worth sampling.

The climate is influenced by ocean breezes coming in from the Gulf of St. Vincent to the west and the altitude of the Sellicks Hill Range to the south. Soil type is varied, ranging from red-brown loam and sand to dark clay and the often-mentioned terra rosa. A misspell of the Italian phrase "terra rossa" (meaning "red soil"), this ruddy-red stuff is left behind when limestone breaks down, and any viticulturist will tell you it's great stuff to grow vines in due
