Elaboration of 2008 Layer Cake Shiraz

2008 Layer Cake Shiraz (Syrah)

South Australia is arguably one of the top shiraz-growing regions of the world. Within SA, the McLaren Vale is the most diverse and historic sub-region with vines dating back to the 1830's. The microclimates within McLaren Vale are what give Layer Cake Shiraz its complexity. For our Shiraz, we pull from vineyards all over McLaren Vale; from the full-clustered, sandy soiled blocks on the sea coast of Gulf St. Vincent, to the Terra Rosa based, tiny-berried wind- blown hills across the Vale. The vineyards are all within a few miles of each other, yet give us a broad array of flavors to blend into a complete wine. Each year we pull a small amount of fruit from tiny vineyards in Padthaway and Wrattanbully for added layers; combined they represent less than 10% of the blend.

Dark, dense and creamy, complex aromas of black plum, Bing cherry, blackberry and pepper merge with licorice, tobacco, mocha and dark chocolate. This is one inky

Shiraz; an explosion of dark, super ripe, wild blackberry, with a touch of cigar box finishing with a mélange of exotic spices. A pure fruit bomb…complete from attack through a long, lingering finish. Chefs will save this cake for themselves…
