DARK RASPBERRY, ANISEED, THYME, A LITTLE SWEET SPICE, SOMETHING OF A COAL-LIKE EARTHINESS. IT’S SUPPLE AND SAVOURY, RIPE FRUIT BUT WITH A SALINE AND EARTHY EDGE, FINE FIRM DUSTY TANNIN, AND A JUICY BUT SLIGHTLY MEATY CHARACTER ON A LONG FINISH. VERY NICE.

Why's this wine for you?

That’s the beauty of Mclaren Vale, the world’s most geographically diverse wine region. One minutes you can be surrounded by ancient, gnarly bush wines, the next you can be taking a dip in the ocean. It’s a lifestyle that appeals to many, not least of all Charlie Seppelt and Skye Salter, the married duo behind Paralian.

After a total of 46 vintages between them, both at home and overseas, they made their home in Port Willunga and set up shop as it were, sourcing fruit to make astounding artisanal Shiraz and Grenache - What else? We are in Mclaren after all.

Fruit is sourced from Blewitt Springs, the coolest sub-region of McLaren and also home to some of the oldest vines. The wines they so lovingly produce from this pristine fruit have to be tasted to be believed.

How's it taste?
The Marmont Vineyard flavour profile is expressed well again - beautifully aromatic with pink fruited fragrance, cinnamon, Thai mint and fresh raspberry notes. Signature grace and medium savoury fruit flow through the palate with a very tight and fine line of tannin.Vegan friendly
