SHERRAH / McLaren Vale, SA

Innovative blends and exciting varietals - the first releases from a winemaker of renown.

A new label with plenty of pedigree, from the hands of the vastly experienced Alex Sherrah.  Alex’s winemaking journey began in McLaren Vale at Tatachilla, followed by stints in Napa and Clare Valleys, Austria and Burgundy, before returning to McLaren Vale in 2012 as Coriole’s senior winemaker, where he has gained solid exposure to the Vale’s emerging varieties.

Working with excellent sites farmed by first rate growers, the philosophy here is to work with five varieties only - Chenin Blanc and Fiano for whites, and Grenache, Shiraz and Nero d’Avola for reds. The wines are characterised by some innovative varietal blending and varying degrees of experimental winemaking, and a house style of freshness and drinkability.
