SKU: HASCOLSHZ18
Somewhere in McLaren Vale youll find a very special block of old vine Shiraz. If you search for it, an olive grove to the west and an ancient chapel will be your guide. The shallow soils overlying a bedrock of limestone and the gentle sea breezes consistently provide us with fruit of exception quality. Our 2018 Col Cross is concentrated and generous with dark fruits and black cherry, the old vines contribute complex spices, cinnamon and nutmeg. A full bodied, luscious and elegant wine that is perfectly balanced by fine grain tannins and lingering structural finish. The aroma has dense, classic Shiraz characters of fresh blackberry, boysenberry and aniseed mesh seamlessly with dried spice and elegant French oak

”Crushed but not destemmed, a cool open fermentation, 12 days on skins, matured in new and used French hogsheads for 18 months, each barrel tasted for suitability for the blend. If full-bodied is what you are after, this is as good a place to start. Ponderous for sure, but it is balanced.”
– James Halliday
