What better than a marriage of McLaren Vale’s two hero varieties? A blend of 64% Syrah and 36% Grenache, this wine rests equidistant between the fragrance of our Grenache and the mouth-filling generosity of our Syrah. It exhibits the soft, silky texture that we see as the signature of all our wines.
Emma (the winemaker) and Toby (the viticulturist) Bekkers have quickly made a reputation for themselves among the McLaren Vale wine community for their exacting standards. All of the fruit is handpicked and sorted, with one of the main goals being to remove raisined berries. They’re looking for fresh red and blue fruit flavors that are more delicate than dried fruit or fruitcake flavors, Emma says. The wines tend to blend multiple sites to achieve the balance that they’re seeking in their wines, choosing grapes from close to the coast to blend with grapes from higher, inland locations.
