Serafino Maglieri came to McLaren Vale in 1968 and devoted his life to wine. From picking to pruning to cellarhand, he worked his way up to plant his own vines and build his first winery. He was twice crowned McLaren Vale Bushing King and claimed Trophy for Best Shiraz at the 1997 Great Australian Wine Challenge. He gained international renown after winning Trophy for Best Shiraz and Red Wine of the Year at the prestigious London International.
Terremoto vineyard is planted north west to red loam over limestone, just on the western side of McLaren Vale township. Vines are trained to a single cordon with a foliage wire controlling the canopy so light can penetrate to evenly ripen the fruit. Hand picked parcels of Terremoto vineyard Syrah are destemmed, leaving a high proportion of whole berries in the must, cold soaked for two days and inoculated with dried yeast culture. Batches are vinified in five tonnes open top fermenters for a week, pumped over twice daily, macerated on skins for a further ten days before pressing to a selection new and one year old oak French and American 300L oak hogsheads.
TASTING NOTES
Black purple colour. Mulberries and chocolate bouquet, spices and satsuma plum, vibrant rich dark fruit intertwined with French and American oak characters of chocolate and spice harmonise with fine subtle tannins. The generosity of fruit character and the seamless integration of oak and tannin ensures the finish is fine, elegant and long.

More About Serafino Winery
Serafino Maglieri arrived in McLaren Vale 1968, partnered with his father who was working at Pirramimma and founded one of the McLaren Vale's leading wineries
From picking, pruning and cellar hand work to planting his own vineyards and building his first winery, Steve has enjoyed great success. In 1965, the father and son team bought 40 hectares of McLaren Vale scrub and set about the task of clearing it and planting vines. In 1972 Steve started his own winery Gully Wines, which he renamed Maglieri Wines in 1977. Steve wanted to create distinctive and characterful McLaren Vale wines and established his own style. The quality of wines improved steadily and by the early 1990s Maglieri was well positioned at the top of the McLaren Vale ladder. One of Serafino‚Äôs greatest achievements has been sensational success at the International Wine Challenge in London. Twice the Maglieri Shiraz beat all comers and was voted Best Shiraz of the Competition. Serafino»
