Eisenstone McDonald Vineyard Marananga Shiraz 2021


Deep, dense colour with a powerful, concentrated bouquet of blood plum, blackberry and ironstone, hints of chocolate/mocha, the palate likewise concentrated and essency, with density and saturation, and the tannins are pervasive, mouth-coating and gently chewy. Quite a lot of oak, but it finds balance on palate in spite of its massive proportions. 96 Points – Huon Hooke, The Real Review


SV904. Grapes were sourced from Roennfeldt Road in the sub-region of Marananga in the Barossa Valley. The original vineyard was rejuvenated by Gil McDonald in the late 1970s and 1980s. The grapes for the single vineyard wine are sourced partly from vines grafted to Shiraz from Crouchen in 1974, and also 1998 plantings of Penfolds SC clone.

The grapes were fermented in small batches and after fermentation was matured in 50% new French oak for 18 months prior to bottling. Minimal intervention is used in the winemaking process and the wine is moved the minimal times prior to bottling and is not cold stabilised or filtered.
