Tasting Note

A triumphant marriage of Shiraz and Grenache. Intense strawberry lift with touches of cherry, minerals and spice from the Grenache whilst the Shiraz envelops the senses and imparts structure and charming bitter-chocolate and mocha notes. Overall a pure, vibrant blend displaying surprising elegance and freshness.

The Wallace is superb drinking now, personally I wouldn't cellar but you could.

Winemaking

Up to 6 separate vineyard components were fermented separately in 2 tonne open stainless steel fermenters. The Shiraz components were fermented cool and received 7 to 10 days on skins, hand plunged 3 times daily/ The Grenache received a warmer ferment to extract colour and tannin structure and was hand plunged twice daily. The wines were pressed to 2 and 3 year old oak for malolactic fermentation before being topped for maturation in 100% 3 and 4th use French and American oak for 14 months.

Press

  • A pretty rendition of this blend. Floral, both blueberries and raspberries, and flush with jubey licorice and spice as it washes through the finish. Alcohol is well tucked into the fruit. Delicious.

    • James Halliday - 93/100
  • A Shiraz and Grenache blend, the 2013 Wallace has a medium garnet - purple color and notes of kirsch, warm red currants and mulberries with suggestions of spice cake, orange peel and potpourri. Soft, generous and full bodied, it gives tons of red and black fruit preserves flavors and a spicy undercurrent, finishing long and with a refreshing lift.

    • Lisa Perotti - Brown - 90+/100
  • Inky purple. Powerful aromas of blueberry, blackberry, wood smoke and violet. Displays supple, open - knit flavors of smoky dark fruits, mocha and candied flowers, with a peppery element adding lift. Shows very good clarity for its richness, with a sweet floral pastille note carrying through the long, smoky, gently tannic finish.
