Blackbilly wine is produced using the famous vineyards of McLaren Vale known for wines of richness and diversity.
Blends of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre (a.k.a. Mataro or Monastrell) is McLaren Vale’s signature blended wine. Old vineyards, a Mediterranean climate and classical winemaking, which includes the use of oak ensures a wine of substance and style.
Colour: Deep burgundy with a distinctive purple hue.
Nose: Fresh and zippy showing blended complexity. Blue fruits with a hint of lavender and Turkish delight around a core of spicy aromatics.
Palate: Up front blue fruits, verging to dark cherry combine well with a solid mid palate highlighting light oak tannin and flavour. Distinct crisp, mouth-watering acidity keeps the freshness and appeal of this medium bodied style.
Potential: This vintage has produced fruity wines that have medium term cellaring potential.
Vintage: 2017 was a cool, long ripening, yet high quality regional vintage.
