A True McLaren Vale Shiraz is here to simply blow your mind with power and length! With very limited quantities available, make the smart choice.
This is a BIG wine that coats the glass. Classic McLaren Vale blueberry and dark chocolate aromas with black olive and meaty flavours. It’s certainly a mouthful and needs a big slice of hearty venison pie to tame it!
True to its roots, The Progenitor is a ripe, rich, full flavoured McLaren Vale Shiraz of depth and substance. A tightly structured wine with layers of complex fruits, full round mouthfeel, fine approachable tannins and good length.
This wine is a balanced wine with all the traditional cues of a McLaren Vale Shiraz with a hint of intrigue. An attractive wine now with layers of fruits complexity, full and round in the mouth, yet soft approachable tannins and good length.
The fruit is 100% Single Vineyard McLaren Vale shiraz. The low yielding vines produce a fruit that is dense, dark and concentrated in its flavour. Traditional winemaking techniques including hand plunged open fermenters were used to extract the best from the fruit. Post ferment the wine was pressed off and entombed in French oak for a period of 18 months. The wine received minimal intervention from this point.
