Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are harvested from the narrow planted, hand managed, high density vines of Penny's Hill, combined with parcels of Merlot from vines on Malpas Road, grown to unique black, cracking Bay of Biscay and brown loam soils immediately south of Penny's Hill. Fruit is destemmed and crushed, prior to varietal components undergoing separate primary fermentation for seven days on skins. Post pressing, each separate batch is transferred to a combination of new and prior use French and American oak barrels. The wines are assembled after a year, as the integration of fruit, oak and softening of tannins are complete.
Deep, dark purple colour. Ripe plum, spice and floral notes with distinctive McLaren Vale earthiness and subtle tobacco/ chocolate qualities. A veritable starburst of fruit, Specialized bursts onto the palate with lively, crunchy, berry flavours, a harmonious balance of tasty oak, acid and tannins, texturally rich with savouryness on a finish of splendid length.
