THE BAMBOO SCRUB 2010 Single Vineyard Shiraz
- This vineyard, planted in the early 1990s is hedged by scrub land to the north and tall bamboo to the south giving inspiration to the name. On the label you can see our winemaker, Chester Osborn depicted as a playful pixie doing his best balancing act in the vineyard. The Bamboo Scrub Vineyard is in the Blewitt Springs sub-region which is renowned for its deep sands, higher altitude and continental climate. This small vineyard is quite inland for McLaren Vale and therefore produces exceptionally fruit driven, fragrant wines. Half of this vineyard is grafted on root-stock which adds complexity to the fragrance and tannins. Pour this wine into a big glass and let the white pepper and spice swirl on the nose. With time you’ll get flowers, fresh earth, fennel leaf and bright red fruit. A very pretty start. The palate is bright and fresh too, red licorice mixes with more spice and pepper dusted mulberries. The tannins are fine and talc-like, laced with minerals and nice length. This wine is all about fragrance, balance and elegance. It will benefit from cellaring for at least 5 years and decanting prior to serving is recommended. Try with game.
