Varietals: Shiraz 100%


Bulgarian winemaker Elena Brooks makes fabulous minimal-intervention wines from old vine vineyards around Adelaide; the fruit is hand-picked, yeasts are ambient and the wine is aged for 18 months in French oak without fining or filtration. The cooler climate of McLaren Vale gives refreshing acidity and grippy tannin to the wine, bringing out its blackberry, black cherry and cocoa flavours.
