Low yields, timely harvesting and TLC.
‘Ulithorne’ is an old, small, family-owned vineyard situated in the premier wine region of McLaren Vale in South Australia. Its hilly, terraced and contoured vine rows overlook the sea, bordering the Onkaparinga River National Park. As custodians of this land, Sam Harrison and Rose Kentish aim to consistently produce exceptional quality wine from 35 year old vines. Through sustainable vineyard practices, minimal irrigation, low yields, timely harvesting and TLC, Sam and Rose believe that they are providing a platform for the making of great wine. Production is limited to 800 dozen, with winemaking being carried out by Brian Light. The fruit is picked when the flavour profiles are at an optimum, which contributes to a relatively high alcohol level of 15.3%, yet still retains perfect pH and TA. After commencing fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine is run off and pressed, completing its fermentation in a combination of new and old French and American oak.
TASTING NOTES: An outstanding Red. Totally opaque black crimson colour with deep black crimson hue. The nose reflects the sophisticated character of this wine. Perfumed notes of cedar, violets, spice, vanilla and blackberry provides a superb lift. The palate flavour profile is mouthfilling, supported by velvet tannins. Flavours of liquorice, black pepper, plum and cedar produce a generous classic McLaren Vale ripe fruit profile. Outstanding length and persistence, with very long aftertaste of plum, cedar and black pepper.
