Wine Notes

From a single vineyard on Bayliss Road in the Sellicks Foothills sub region of McLaren Vale. Matured in 75% new French oak, only four barrels produced. Crushed and destemmed and no adjustments. 11-day ferment, then basket pressed to tank to settle off solids, three days later racked to barriques. Our Archetype Shiraz is our attempt at bridging the gap between classic and modern McLaren Vale styles: concentrated and powerful yet restrained. Intense but still elegant.

The Real Review

“Deep red colour with a purple rim. The bouquet is primarily oaky, with sweet vanilla and coconut oak to the fore. It’s the same on the palate: medium to full-bodied and carries a firm tannin grip, which also has an oaky taste. An old-fashioned oaky Aussie red.”
