Druer: Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvèdre
Producent: Leconfield & Richard Hamilton Wines
Region: McLaren Vale
The style of wine for which we strive displays the elegance, length and fruit sweetness that we obtain from Grenache, while the Shiraz provides the fine tannin structure and Mourvèdre contributes to the texture. All components were pressed before reaching sugar dryness on skins to retain long but elegant tannins.
Over the years, we have found that our Grenache style wines are more complemented through maturation in used rather than new oak. The components were matured separately and the blend received an egg white fining before filtering and bottling.
