2017 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.
The nose is complex with the typical Blewitt Springs blue fruits and plum, but it also has a savoury edge with wet slate and oak lift. The palate is seamlessly integrated, structured and long. Plum and blue fruit flavours work well with oak derived complexities of subtle coffee and dark chocolate.
Drink now or cellar for 15+ years.
