2017 Ulithorne Dona Shiraz, McLaren Vale, SA
At Ulithorne's home in McLaren Vale they grow Shiraz and Grenache on their vineyard located on Kays Rd, Blewitt Springs. Blewitt Springs is a subregion of McLaren Vale and is renowed for the incredible fruit flavor intensity generated from the old vines grown in the deep sands of this sub-region. The fruit on our 65 year old vineyard is an exceptional example of the unique and highly acclaimed quality that can be achieved.
The Ulithorne style of winemaking is always to consider the fruit first, and ensure that the final wine celebrates all that is unique in the flavours and structure of that fruit she tastes as it ripens in the vineyard.
Sourced from friends’ vineyards, this Shiraz shows pretty, ripe plums, subtle peppery notes and a supportive line of acid that makes it a great food wine.
