Deeply coloured and concentrated, pure raspberry, mixed with a multitude of black fruits, loaded with complex Morello bitter cherry, spice and layered thick. Lovely balance with silky smooth, very long palate and lingering finish. Class effort from these Adelaide Plains sites.
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.
