Hare’s Chase Marananga Cabernet Shiraz 2017

Special Price $35.00 Regular Price $40.00
Wow, this is a big wine. Presenting with aromas of violet, juniper and black fruits that lead to a palate awash with blue and black fruits balanced by varietal Cabernet greenery. Superb aromatics, balance and juiciness in the midst of dense, dark fruits. Great now, or any time over the next 15 years.

The Hare’s Chase Vineyard dates back to 1961 and is in the Marananga sub-region of the Barossa Valley. The Vineyard covers 35 acres which are tended carefully and generally yield a very low 2 tonnes per acre. Plantings are predominantly Shiraz, with a bit of Cab, Tempranillo and Merlot also in the ground. Wines are made with minimal intervention and are bottled without fining or filtration.

Just 60km northeast of Adelaide, the Barossa Valley is one of Australia's oldest wine regions.

Just 60km northeast of Adelaide, the Barossa Valley is one of Australia's oldest wine regions. Warm and dry, it is renowned for producing the distinctive Barossa Shiraz, a full-bodied red with notes of chocolate and spice. The valleys and sloping hills create several temperature ranges. But in summer, take it from us: it's just plain hot.

The soils range from clay and loam in the cooler areas to the classically South Australian sand and red-brown loam in the valleys. Irrigation is often required, but with water supply an increasing problem, many growers are practicing dryland farming, relying on what falls from the sky and clings from night fog. Couple this with the number of very old vines in the region (which produce limited quantities of grapes), and the result is fruit with deeply concentrated flavour which quickly ripen. A great foundation for some of the world's most acclaimed reds.
