Ulithorne McLaren Vale Nova Duo Grenache Shiraz 2019
"There's a tension to this wine which, when combined with perfumed, jubey fruit, makes for pretty compelling drinking. It's not weighty or concentrated but it has spark. Redcurrant, aniseed, deli meat, graphite and clove flavours chatter energetically. It's a busy wine in a good way."
Campbell Mattinson, Hallidays Wine Companion. 93/100
"An intense burst of red berry fruit on first swirl: raspberry liqueuer, red plums and ripe cherries. A underlying savoury meatiness adds complexity to another otherwise strikingly juicy and fresh wine. A nouveau red equally enjoyed in summer as it is in the cooler months"
Nick Butler, The Real Review. 93/100
Lifted aromas of raspberry and cherry. Fresh juicy palate with cherries, red fruits and spices. Medium bodied with fine, savoury tannins
Hand-picked Grenache and Shiraz from our Kays Road vineyard were combined for co-fermentation. Plunged three times daily before being gently pressed and filled to seasoned French Oak barrels for the final stages of ferment and MLF. Short maturation (approximately 3 months) in oak then racked, coarsely filtered, and bottled
