An outstanding Australian Shiraz, the majority of which has been exported. Ulithorne is an old family owned vineyard situated in McLaren Vale. The vineyard is terraced and the contoured vine rows over look the sea. The vines are over 30 years old. Owners, Sam Harrison and Rose Kentish manage their vineyard through sustainable viticultural practices. Irrigation is kept to a minimum, ensuring full flavour profile development, without stressing the vines. Yields are kept low, in order to produce deeply coloured highly concentrated wine. Frux Frugis is made by winemaker Brian Light. The wines undergo a warm start to the ferment of 30°C and then cooled to 25°C. The fermentation is completed in barrel, where it also undergoes malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged for 18 months in 15% new French oak, 22% old French oak and 63% new American oak.
Tasting Note: Totally opaque black purple crimson colour, with black purple hue. Outstanding varietal nose, with intense aroma of mocha, spice, liquorice, dark chocolate, vanilla and blackberry. Is it any wonder that the world wants more and more Australian Shiraz? The palate has the weight and mouthfeel that is the hallmark of McLaren Vale. Mouthfilling flavours of spicy oak, liquorice all sorts, blackberry, vanilla and cedar. Perfectly balanced tannins, with exceptionally long aftertaste of vanilla, toasted oak, blackberry and liquorice.
Cellar 5-8 years (2008-2011).
