Chalk Hill Luna Shiraz, McLaren Vale

Chalk Hill Luna Shiraz, McLaren Vale

Made from Shiraz with a small amount, about 5%, of Barbera. A rich, deep purple coloured wine, the nose shows dark raspberry fruit with floral notes and a touch of savoury earthiness; the palate shows crunchy red-berry fruit with hints of chocolate, coffee and cracked pepper spice. The fruit was sourced from three low-yielding vineyards in McLaren Vale, the vines being between 25 to 45 years old. These produced eight parcels of fruit which were treated separately and blended after a period of ageing in French oak barrels, 20% new, for 15 months.
