Sarah Linhart

"Warm and syrupy with an earthy minerality."

Sarah Linhart

What a bargain this is. McLaren Vale Shiraz at its plump best, with so much chunky flavour, soft tannins and then a lovely smooth palate. 

Amamis here is showcasing the very essence of medium bodied, oh-so-generous Vale Shiraz and at an excellent price.

How's it taste?

This classic McLaren Vale Shiraz is a smooth, rich wine with layers of delicious dark berry fruits and mocha. On the palate it's smoky, earhty notes and well integrated tannins provide a pefect balance to the bright fruit flavours.

How was it made?

Sourced from the 64 acre Aramis vineyard, located in the southern foothills of the McLaren Vale region. Its unique position, just 2km away from the coast of the Gulf St Vincent, allows the vines to benefit from a maritime climate with cooling afternoon sea breezes coming in from the south west. These breezes prevent fruit from over-ripening so that we are able to produce elegant wines that balance rich primary fruit flavours with the characteristic earthiness and minerality associated with the region. The vineyards are planted exclusively with Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes – a deliberate move to produce the best possible wines that reflect our unique vineyard site.

At flavour and tannin ripeness, the grapes were harvested and crushed. After 7 gentle days on skins the free run fraction was run off, and the skins were carefully pressed. The free run and pressing fractions were then combined. After 24 hours the wine was racked to a mixture of French oak barrels and tanks, where it was matured for 18 months.

Who made it?

In 1998, when Lee Flourentzou purchased a small parcel of land in the far south west corner of McLaren Vale, he wanted to create a collection of wines that reflected his own sense of passion and adventure. He took his inspiration for the vineyard name from one of the greatest stories of all time – Alexandre Dumas’ The Three Musketeers, and one of its most enduring characters, the legendary Aramis. With their wines counting amongst South Australia’s greatest single vineyard reds, Aramis Vineyards truly are the modern classics of the McLaren Vale. Red wines are produced from fruit sourced exclusively from their unique vineyard site in McLaren Vale and are now looked after by esteemed winemaker Renae Hirsch.
