Maglieri has enjoyed much international success over the past thirty years. With an enviable list of accolades and awards, Maglieri is well known for producing red wines with the greatest poise, full of charm and character, the first growth in pure McLaren Vale Merlot.
Giovanni and Steve Maglieri bought forty hectares of McLaren Vale scrub in 1965 and set about the task of clearing it to plant vines. Gully Wines was established in 1972, later being renamed to Maglieri in 1977. Steve was obsessed with a vision to handcraft distinctive McLaren Vale wines. When award winning winemaker John Loxton joined Maglieri in 1981, the pair were able to establish their own style. Maglieri had the foresight to plant their Merlot vines to some of the best sites within McLaren Vale. Following harvest and vinification in a mix of fermenters, the finished Maglieri wine is matured in a combination of tight grained oak barrels, softening the gentle tannins and enhancing the supple Merlot fruit.
TASTING NOTES
Bright purple red. Fragrant, spicy black berries on the bouquet with hints of licorice, gum leaf and cocoa. Rounded elegant fruit is held firmly together by lashings of tender oak, gentle flavours within an excellent weight of palate, supported by pliant tannins.
