Barossa Valley

Fraser's 'simple yet attentive' farming philosophy remains unchanged with the sixth rendition of 'Little Wine', with paramount importance placed on prudence, organics and our alignment with lunar rhythms. All cuts are made amid descending moons and with the greatest of care, yearning to produce fine canes, balanced clusters and small berries with resilient skins. Shoot thinning, suckering and crop paring are all integral parts of the annual cycle with an ideal to farm as simply as possible, resulting in the harvest of healthy fruit early in the season that requires no additions or adjustments and little intervention.

This is an unvintaged ‘assemblage’ composed of casks from 2016 (47%), 2015 (44%), 2013 (5%) & 2012 (4%). Exclusively sourced from treasured plots within the Hoffmann’s ‘Dallwitz’ vineyard from vines planted in 1996, 1995, 1994, 1960 & the oldest vines planted prior to 1912.

Our cellar practices continue on-premise; the grapes are hand-sorted, whole clusters are gently pigeaged by foot prior to basket pressing into Burgundian Pièces where they complete both their primary and malolactic fermentations. To encourage the retention of naturally occurring carbon dioxide the wines are not racked or clarified during their élevage and remain on their lees until they are assembled.

An abundance of dark fruits, violet on the nose, followed by hint of sweet spices, anise, clove and tobacco leaf. Juicy and full bodied with silky tannins and lovely structure. Intense flavours of blueberries, blackberries, dark cherries, black plums and blackcurrant. It’s conveniently approachable yet offers the structure and stuffing to develop further in the years to come.

BAROSSA VALLEY

The Barossa is the home of shiraz in Australia. It is a place that saw most of the country's famous Shiraz come to life. A lot of truly spectacular wines have emerged from this region. However, more recently there has been one man who is doing his own thing, pushing for ever-more pure and balanced wines: Fraser McKinley. Learn More »
