About McLaren Vale
There is a lot of hubbub in McLaren Vale at the moment. The talk is that their climate is a lot more similar to that of the mediterranean than that of France, so Italian and Spanish varieties should thrive in “the Vale”. And they do.
That is not to say that Shiraz and Grenache aren’t excelling in the region, on the contrary, the examples coming out of the region at the moment are the best they have ever been. Balanced, even elegant and of a world class standard. McLaren Vale is one of the most interesting wine regions in the country at the moment, where tradition meets innovation and it is producing some of the country’s finest wines. You should enjoy them.

2012 SELDOM INN GRENACHE Red fruits like raspberry and barberry with slight herb of a bay leaf and szechaun pepper are prominent. More subtle characters of pencil shavings from the French oak are wrapped up in a minerality character. Raspberry and dark berry flavours are dominant with its palate structure derived from its acidity profile and a fine grained French oak tannin has given the wine power and finesse. A lot of primary fruit is up front and subtle secondary characters are showing strength.
