About The Wine
A beautiful sentiment behind this stellar release from Dudley and Irina at Inkwell Wines. An ode to the late great Lou Reed.
This is the flagship Shiraz of the Inkwell portfolio. Hand picked Shiraz from Block 1 & 2 on the Inkwell Estate, there is a lil' Primitivo in there as well which adds extra dimensions to this excellent release.
In his 94 point review of the 2014 vintage, Gary Walsh quipped, "a whole lot more McLaren Vale should take a leaf out of this book". It's bold, unfettered McLaren Vale Shiraz with an unforced feel.
This is just great drinking and if you are in the market for a premium SA Shiraz with loads of class, this is the Prefect Day to try something new.
Husband and wife duo Dudley Brown and Dr. Irina Santiago-Brown of Inkwell Wines in McLaren Vale, are true advocates of sustainable farming practices and are self confessedly “fanatical about (their) vines and wines.”
The Inkwell Wines are all produced from their beautiful organically farmed vineyard while the Dubstyle wines are a range designed as a way for them to stretch their winemaking wings beyond the reaches of their home vineyard.
They've found some stunning vineyards in the surrounding areas to source from, they make the wines at their home in McLaren Vale, then like any great music track, they mix and blend the certain parts until the wine 'sounds' just right.
Inkwell wines have a signature power and strength which does their home region proud.
