Established in 1980 by Paul and Jill Buttery with the purchase of a vineyard on Tatachilla Road in the heart of McLaren Vale, initially the venture’s focus was solely on grape growing and selling their fruit to more established brands. However, in 1998 they decided to establish their own label – Gemtree Vineyards, after son (Andrew) and daughter (Melissa) joined the team. Today Gemtree vineyards are well established and consistently produce great value wines. The vineyards are farmed using biodynamic practices and are now fully certified organic. Andrew Buttery is general manager with Melissa in charge of viticulture and her husband Mike Brown, winemaker.
Rich chocolatey McLaren Vale Shiraz with a soft fleshy texture
The fruit for this wine is sourced from biodynamically grown vines aged from 20-80 years. Maturation occurred in 100% French oak barrels ranging in size from puncheons (500L) to barriques (225L) for a period of 16 months. Outstanding colour displaying a saturated inky black core with a very deep black dark crimson red hue. Pronounced aromas of liquorice, ripe blackberries and dark chocolate are followed by vanillin cedar and spicy mocha. Rich succulent flavours of ripe blackberries, dark chocolate and liquorice are overlaid by vanillin cedar and mocha. Plush opulent mouthfeel with satiny tannins. Excellent volume and depth with a long conclusion of ripe blackberries, dark chocolate, spicy vanillin cedar and mocha.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Attacks with flavour and doesn't let up. Inky, blackberried, clovey characters power throughout, tempered only by fruit-drenched tannin, saltbush complexity and meaty/smoky oak. It's almost exactly the wine you'd hope it to be. Drink by 2026.
