About The Wine
After leaving the station of winemaker at regional hero producer Coriole where he worked for many years, Alex set up his eponymous label and immediately got off to a flyer.
He was named as one of James Halliday's Top Ten Best New Wineries in 2018 and hasn't looked back since.
These wines have an inherent drinkability about them. They are swish, polished McLaren Vale vinos that put a slight twist of the classic regional stylings.
With a selection of white, rose and red here on offer at a great price, it's a perfect way to dip your toe in Alex's world.
2018 Sherrah Shiraz
`"The wine is McLaren Vale to its boot straps..."
- James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)
No McLaren Vale wine range would be complete without a hearty, robust Shiraz.
Alex Sherrah knows how to make a top Shiraz from this region. Having been in charge of the famous wines of Coriole for many years, Alex has a wealth of experience which he drew on to make his Sherrah Shiraz.
This is a classic version of the variety, filled with dark berries, chocolate and coco-like tannins. It's a richly flavoured wine, densely concentrated and full bodied. It will be perfect for those who enjoy a red with a bit of grunt.Read more about 2018 Sherrah Shiraz
2018 Sherrah Red et Al
Winemaker Alex Sherrah's eponymous label is all about interesting medium bodied wines that showcase the changing face of modern McLaren Vale wine.
The Sherrah Red ed Al. is a blend of Grenache, Shiraz and, Nero d'Avola born from the soils of McLaren Vale. It's a tweak on the classic GSM blend the region does so well.
Cheery red fruit from the Grenache, a plummy centre from the Shiraz and an aromatic lift coming from the Nero d'Avola, the blend is spot on.
James Halliday rated it 95 points, it's solid, joyful drinking from a very good winemaker.Read more about 2018 Sherrah Red et Al

2018 Sherrah White et Al
Some interesting explorations for ex-Coriole winemaker Alex Sherrah in his solo venture.
This is a new look McLaren Vale white blend that combines Fiano with Chenin Blanc. It's a wine dialled into floral territory. Taking the best structural aspects of both varieties and creating something that is crunchy and textural making it perfect for matching with many dishes.
As Alex describes it "Chenin brings crisp lemon and green pear freshness. Fiano adds texture and a lingering mouth-watering acidity that leaves you wanting more. Dare you not to crack another bottle."
If you are looking for more interesting whites to fill that 'classic dry white' spot in your rotation, this will do the job very nicely.Read more about 2018 Sherrah White et Al
