2016 Lot Three Single Vineyard Shiraz
In 1960 Giovanni Patritti needed to acquire more land to sustain the growth of the Dover Gardens winery and the natural choice was the nearby region of McLaren Vale. He purchased the property at Lot Three Elliot Road, Blewitt Springs and by 1969 twenty five acres of Shiraz had been planted. With an average age of 50 years, the vines on this site give the Lot Three Shiraz an identity of its own.
This wine displays all the hallmarks of a classic McLaren Vale Shiraz. The nose is blackberry, plum, red fruits, dry spices and a gentle lick of dark chocolate. A very distinguished wine on the palate with great texture and structure to the blackberry and red fruit flavours. High quality oak and fine-grained tannins run the length of the medium bodied palate.
The wine, matured in French puncheons and demi-muids, has plum and blackberry fruits rolling across the mouth in a chariot of ripe tannins and French oak. All this power, yet only 14% alcohol. All this wine, yet only $35.
