IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

The simple black and white packaging proudly wears a splash of PINK boasting an impressive contribution of $100,000 to the Flinders Medical Centre Foundation (FMCF) and their fight against cancer. The Gaffer 2016 Shiraz is a testament to the best of McLaren Vale. Charming, immense, and immensely affable, the Gaffer 2016 is outstanding. A firm aromatic slap of blackcurrant precedes rose, thyme, and paprika, and these heady notes complex into cherry wood, white pepper, and vanilla on the palate. All of this is matched to the texture of velour, but with much more style. “The Gaffer” is a flavoursome, fruit driven, full bodied Shiraz that is exceptionally well balanced and assured to please the palate… with a touch of PINK!

Grapes for “The Gaffer” have been sourced from the best vineyards from a variety of McLaren Vale’s best sites A tried and tested area for growing full-flavoured Shiraz, McLaren Vale has almost the perfect climate for grape growing; warm summers, low humidity, good winter rain and long Autumns to ensure that grapes achieve ripeness, flavour, acid and balance. Vintage 2016 experienced small yield, however, a yield of great quality grapes that produced elegant, pretty, feminine Shiraz. The winter was relatively normal, very wet like preceding vintages 2012 & 2013. The soil moisture was favourable, leading into the spring. January was very warm, and winds were very strong which contributed to a loss in yield. Overall, a favourable vintage that lead to great quality Shiraz.
