About The Wine
Ben Haines has a knack for coaxing the very best out of cool-climate Australian Shiraz. If you need further convincing, just look at the great work he did at Mount Langi during his tenure as winemaker.
For Ben's triumphant "Return To The Vale", he has chosen a particularly cool patch of the region, a biodynamically farmed vineyard in the north of McLaren Vale as his source.
He has turned out a beauty here. It's a dark, savoury and slightly wild Shiraz with a brightness of fruit which is possibly A-typical of the region and absolutely gorgeous to drink.
