Terra rossa soils the source. And they show, as a ferrous ingress of iodine and sweet earth, mingling with blue and darker fruit aspersions and the smoked meatiness of reductive handling and its floral lift. A rich wine with a modicum of restraint, tension and solid drinkability. Read more

The Wine Collective - Tasting Panel

The fruit-forward, early-drinking 2021 Shiraz Sparta presents modest aromas of plum jam, dark chocolate and mocha with old oak sitting in the background. It's chunky and slightly rustic. The tannins are a touch firm before fading on the finish.

Tasting Notes

This is a classic McLaren Vale shiraz. A bright nose of dark fruits, leather, ground anise and blackberry bramble. A plush palate offering up a bounty of forest fruits and mellow oak. The Sparta is a fruit driven Shiraz made to enjoy in its youth though will cellar well. Tannins aresoft and approachable with great fruit length.

Winemakers Note

Our Sparta vineyard was planted around 25 years ago on a north facing hillside on the western boundary of our property. The style is bright, rich and full bodied.

The vineyard is surrounded on all sides by Kalamata and Koroneiki olive trees that we process into table olives on the estate. There is a further Greek connection as the property was originally owned by a Greek family who originated from the countryside surrounding Sparta in Greece.
