About

He is regarded as one of the most influential winemakers in the recent renaissance of the region. A man who paved the way for a new breed of Barossa winemaking. A man of vision.

The La Maline is his top release. Made in only tiny quantities, this is a more elegant side of Barossa Shiraz.

The fruit is sourced from four vineyards in the higher parts of the north-west Barossa, Moculta, Eden Valley and the Eastern foothills. With the deft touch we have come to expect from this producer, the fruit undergoes a wild ferment in large format oak (about 30% new) and sees a healthy dose of whole bunches and a small amount of Viognier skins for aromatic lift.

It is a pleasure to drink this wine. Finesse and intricacy combine effortlessly with the brooding power of the region. All in all it is a beautiful wine.

97 points from James Halliday.

What It Tastes Like

Clove and toasty oak, black plums, black pepper, spice - has it all going on. Poise and a long pure line of flavour which is deeply concentrated. Fantastic structure. Long and elegant but with SA weight. Top class Barossa red wine.
