About the wine
100% Shiraz over complex (Alluvial Gravel & Sand / Sandy Ironstone) soil from McLaren Vale, Australia. 45 year+ old vines.
Aussie Shiraz is frequently trying to push against the Parker-era prize winning wines that put Australia on the map: soupy, jammy, 16% alcohol. James Erskine's Archie Shiraz comes from a biodynamic vineyard in the McLaren Vale and is a breath of blackberry fresh air: the fruit is lithe and salty, with a brambly herbal side underneath. Eucalyptus and kaffir lime at the finish give you an Aussie kiss goodbye. No oak, no fining or filtration, no SO2.
