About The Wine
Grown with minimal inputs on their estate Whites Valley vineyard, in McLaren Vale.
This wine is quite a bright, and refreshing expression of McLaren Vale Shiraz. No new oak lends itself well to Shiraz in the Vale, producing buoyant, yet juicy expressions of the varietal.
With a soft tannin profile, this juiciness extends the wine, leading to a long and moreish finish.
About Cooter & Cooter
Cooter & Cooter are Kimberly & James, a husband and wife winemaking and grape growing duo, both of whom are second generation winemakers.
Their logo reflects the connection between the generations of winemakers within both their families. With the specific script a homage to various Cooter businesses dating back to 1847.
Purchasing their dream vineyard in 2012 in McLaren Vale, they inherited mostly youngish Shiraz, alongside some beautiful, gnarly old vine Grenache planted in the 1940, one of the elite vineyard characteristics of the region.
They have a simple and straight-forward outlook, to make wines from fruit and regions they love, with an eye on evolving their own vineyards to organic/biodynamic practices as they further establish their own roots.
