Black fruited aromatics wrapped up in a nougat and hazelnut lift. Plenty of power here, the full bodied core encased in comforting toasty oak with familiar dark chocolate and fruitcake flavours. Mouth swirling medium grained tannin leads to good length and an uplifting inky finish
The Old Plains Wine Co. was established by Dominec Torzi and Tim Freeland in 2002. ‑their driving ambition was to salvage some of the last remaining old vine vineyards in the Adelaide Plains region of South Australia. These vineyards were generally planted post WWII by Italian migrants & returned servicemen. The vineyards survived intact until the mid ‘80’s when many were uprooted to make way for market gardens, almond orchards and housing. Families generally left and acre or two, or a couple of rows for the family cantina wine, we source fruit from these remnant vineyards and since 2002 have produced a range ofShiraz,Grenache and cabernet that oozes all the dark fruit flavour that only old vine handmade basket pressed wines can offer. Torzi & Freeland are traditionally taught winemakers, using traditional techniques. Vineyards utilise sustainable growing practices with the fruit hand-picked.
