Planted to original rootstock on the gently undulating plains of Padthaway Valley, the Morambro Creek vines are grown to rich Terra Rosa soils, enjoying excellent sun exposure, yielding grapes with the most concentrated flavours, deep colour and generous tannins. Heat generated during the day is moderated each evening by coastal winds that cool the vines, achieving an extended vintage. This extended time on the vine allows for grape tannins and seed to fully ripen before harvest, translating into wines that are rich and intense yet supple on the palate.
Morambro Creek is assembled from select barrels of estate wines that best demonstrate the intensity of Shiraz, brought to a balance by integrated oak. The pursuit of great wine can be seen in the meticulous management of the vineyard. Low crop yields are the go, as are small bunches of grapes with intense flavour. The latest technology is employed to achieve vine balance and reduced vigour, harvest is conducted only when the fruit reaches full flavour development. Winemaking at Morambro Creek is very traditional and labour intensive. A large proportion of new oak barrels are employed for maturation. Naturally clarified with egg white and milk, there may be some harmless residue to the wine. Alcohol 14.5%
TASTING NOTES
Deep inky black/ purple in colour. The nose is perfumed with violet, blackberry, vanilla and spice, a touch of earth and liquorice over white pepper in the background. Expansive palate, smooth lush ripe back fruits nicely balanced oak, plenty of concentration with a long finish. Full bodied with savoury, integrated tannins and impressive length, all in perfect harmony.
