The 2019 Passion is sourced from eight core McLaren Vale vineyards with vine age between nine and 35 years and includes 55% Cabernet and 45% Shiraz. After up to seven days on skins, the juice was pressed to stainless steel (to keep things jubey and bright) for a 10-month maturation. The Cabernet provides acidity and tannins, along with nettle-like complexity. The palate is energetic and cool, with blackcurrant and plummy fruit, punchy tannins and that menthol note from the Cabernet. Has the weight, interest and cool refreshment of a good Loire Valley Cab Franc. Delicious!
