Intense, complex and bright nose of black cherry and blackened cedar wood with complexing dried Mediterranean herbs. The palate is a true reflection of one of the great vintages of the region with immense yet savoury flavours of vanilla, dark plums and dry, earthy flavours reminiscent of the clay soil from which it is grown.

VINEYARD INFORMATION
Vineyard Notes
The G.A.M. Shiraz comes from the Lopresti vineyard, and more specifically the Chinese Block, which is located at the southern end of McLaren Vale, about 4km east of the coastal town of Port Willunga. The soil here is heavy grey loam mixed with black Biscay clay and sits above ancient Gnaltinga formation bedrock. Strong vine growth in spring is tempered by summers dry winds, developing pure, bright and savoury fruit flavours that are tempered by cooling afternoon sea breezes. VINE AGE: 40+ years ELEVATION: 25m above sea level SOIL TYPE: Black Biscay Clay
WINEMAKING & TECH INFORMATION
Winemaker Notes
Each parcel of fruit for G.A.M. is fermented on skins for approximately ten days. Parcels are fermented quite cool which helps to preserve the bright fruit characters without extracting any hard or bitter tannins from the skins and seeds. After ten days the wines are gently pressed and run down to oak barrels, of which approximately 70% are new. The wines are stored in the oak for close to eighteen months after which each barrel is considered for the final G.A.M. blend. HARVEST DATE: March 2013 MATURATION: French Oak: 70% new, 30% used. 18 months ALCOHOL (Alc/Vol): 14.5% RS: 3.1G/L pH: 3.50 TA: 6.6 g/L
