"Dense, savoury, spiced black fruits. Chocolate, prunes, minty and savoury."

"Fantastic concentration on the palate. Great Work with this wine."

Sam Taylor

Ripe and generous McLaren Vale Cabernet with big black fruit flavours. That's what you expect with Vale reds though, and this doesn't disappoint. Blackberry, blackberry and oh yes, more blackberry.

Expert Reviews

93 Points - Sam Kim - Wine OrbitThis is classically expressed on the nose showing blackcurrant, cocoa, cedar and floral characters with a touch of dried herb complexity. The palate is wonderfully weighted and brightly fruited, delivering excellent intensity and fine texture, delightfully framed by fine chalky tannins.

How's it taste?

Rich dark fruits fill the mouth in waves: blackcurrant, blackberry and mulberry, with subtle notes of chocolate and a soft tannin structure.

How was it made?

Bayliss Road is the second label of Vinrock Wines and the range is made exclusively for The Wine Collective by winemaker Michael Fragos. The Black Label range is extremely popular and it’s easy to see why; every year the wines are rich, concentrated and full-flavoured. This parcel comes from Luca vineyard, a boutique family vineyard in the heart of McLaren Vale. After gentle pressing the free run juice and the pressing fractions were blended together and then aged for 12 months in a mix of new and old French Hogshead before release.

Who made it?

Luca Vineyard was established in 1998 by Don Luca, along with sons-in-law Marco Iannetti and Anthony De Pizzol. The Don’s Italian heritage and experience with his father’s vineyard led the way for his involvement in Australia’s agricultural industry. Fastidious viticulture and the great terroir of McLaren Vale means fruit of exceptional quality, and the resultant wines reflect this. The philosophy was, and still is, is to create wines that express purity of variety and regional character.
