Mclaren Vale Red Wines

Red wine – we like it, you like it. Sometimes it’s really red, sometimes it’s less red. Sometimes it’s Barossa Valley Shiraz, sometimes Coonawarra Cabernet or McLaren Vale Grenache. New world, old world, weird and wonderful, traditional and cutting edge – if it’s red and it passed the Tasting Panel’s approval, it’s here. Which is the least tannic red wine? Tannins come from both grape skins and oak. Pinot Noir is generally fairly low in tannins, as is Gamay, Barbera and Dolcetto. Rosé, given its limited skin contact and typical fermentation in stainless steel, is usually very low in tannin.

    Herbs, blue fruits and spice on the nose. Mulberries, blueberries, spice, dried herbs and black pepper on the palate.

  3. Clandestine Vineyards Hearts & Minds Grenache 2021
    Special Price $55.00 Regular Price $60.00
    McLaren Vale Grenache is some of the very best produced in the world and the elevated and slightly cooler Blewitt Springs sub-region has a strong claim to being its best site within the McLaren Vale. This Grenache is sourced from low-yielding, 70+ year old, Blewitt Springs vines. No herbicides or pesticides are used in the vineyard and the wine is vegan friendly. The fruit is handpicked and open fermented before being transferred into 15% new French oak for a year before bottling unfined and unfiltered. There are red fruits, florals and spice, black olives, fleshy plum, plentiful acidity, and wonderfully fine, powdery tannins. A stunning Grenache. Learn More
  4. Colab and Bloom McLaren Vale Montepulciano 2020
    Special Price $20.00 Regular Price $27.50
    A beautifully structured mid-weight wine. Vibrant red fruits, black cherry and bay leaf. Quite big by Monty standards and needs decanting to coax out the fruit suggesting that will be a long-lived wine. Learn More

  7. Curtis 38 Year Old Tawny
    Special Price $70.00 Regular Price $100.00
    This Tawny has spent over 38 years in barrel slowly oxidizing and becoming aldehydic in the process. It is amber and brown in colour and packed with nuttiness and raisins. There is enough sweetness to make the palate lush and plenty of acid too which provides balance and a dry finish. A stunning fortified wine. Learn More
  8. Curtis Cavaliere Cabernet 2018
    Special Price $60.00 Regular Price $70.00
    Drum roll please, here’s the new release Cabernet from Curtis Cavaliere which winemaker Mark rates as the best wine he made from the 2018 vintage! Lots going on here, from plums, mint, violet, tobacco, salinity, and a good whack of vanilla oak which adds a suggestion of sweetness without overwhelming the fruit. Sumptuous Learn More
