SHERRAH 'RED ET AL' GSN (GRENACHE SHIRAZ NERO D'AVOLA) 2017

25.09

An Australian first!  60% Grenache and 24% Shiraz from the Lacey vineyard (Tatachilla), with 16% Nero d’Avola from the Petrucci vineyard - second generation growers specialising in new and interesting varieties.  Aged 9 months in seasoned French oak before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. 

"The resulting wine is a harmonious, quietly complex red of medium weight and high drinkability. There's a symphonic feel to bouquet and palate with ripe fruit enhanced with herbal, sweet spice, savoury characters and shapely tannins. Aimed at being the gluggable red of the range, it's varied elements elevate the offering." Mike Bennie, Gourmet Traveller Wine

“Raspberry, spice and black jelly bean perfume. It’s bright and crunchy, spicy and purple tasting, a smattering of dried herb and cured meat through juicy fruit. Tannin is kind of grainy and sticky, but subtle, and the finish is briary and pretty long. Takes a little chill quite nicely, and does the nouveau red thing very well.”   92 points, Gary Walsh, Winefront

"Complexity with a capital C is the order of the day with the carefully planned and excecuted vinification. It keeps you on your toes, different facets showing on each visit to the wine. In the end, it's the purity of the fruit line that holds sway, earthy complexity ever present, but unable to take control of the palate." 96 points, Halliday 2018 Wine Companion

Sherrah

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 Sherrah wines are characterised by some innovative varietal blending, and a house style of freshness and drinkability.  A superb set of wines for this inaugural release.
