Paralian Wines Blewitt Springs Shiraz 2021 - McLaren Vale
Closure: Screw cap
Bottle size: 750 ml
Single Vineyard Shiraz, fruit sourced from ‘Springs Hill Vineyard’, Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale grown by the Whaite family
Dry Grown, on Maslin Sand, East/West aspect 205-210m altitude.
Spicy, deep, dense and dark to black primary fruits, Kalamata tapenade and white spice intermingle with coal dust, graphite and charcuterie notes. Richly scented, medium to full bodied with a dense ripe core of coiled tannins, a coolness to the fruits through the palate with richness that McLaren Vale delivers with little effort. The fine spice notes throughout this wine giving it freshness and a style befitting of where it’s grown.
We loved last years debut release of this wine, but stylistically we prefer this 2019. It’s a knockout Mclaren Vale Shiraz, powerful, deep, brooding, dark berry flavours strewn with vibrant lifted violet floral notes that take you to the Northern Rhone Valley in France with just a whiff of St Joseph about it. The mouthfeel is so silky and fine and the absence of excessive new oak I must admit is a relief here. It’s up there with the best South Australian Shiraz we have tried this year. Brilliant winemaking. This is gorgeous!
We were fresh-faced, aspiring young winemakers tallying up the vintage experiences when we met in 2008 at Hardy’s Tintara in McLaren Vale. A connection was formed over long nightshifts, sneaky midnight coffees and love of all things wine.
Many vintages together followed both here in Australia and abroad, but the pull of McLaren Vale was too great and we gave up the nomadic vintage life to put down some roots.
We found our home in Port Willunga, a seaside town in the McLaren Vale wine region, where the afternoons are long, and the glasses full.
After a collective 46 vintages all over the world it was finally time to make a little wine for ourselves and our long-awaited project Paralian Wines was born.
Choosing specific sites for each variety lead us to the northern reaches of McLaren Vale where old inland seas once were, now leaving beach like pockets where our chosen red varieties, Grenache and Shiraz thrive.
Site and vintage expression is our fundamental belief, working with our growers to ensure quality and ideal ripeness is met with balance and varietal expression in mind. To do more, is to do less.
This is our story, these are our wines, we are - PARALIAN.
