Sourced from the same single vineyard in the Sellicks Hill area of McLaren Vale as the sibling label The Artisan. This one with a little more time in oak and bottle. Winemaker is Renae Hirsch.
Allegiance Wines, Single Vineyard, Mataro, McLaren Vale, 2020
Lifted baking spice and tea cake aromas, fleshy plum, blackberry, dark chocolate, turned earth and a hint of gun flint. Palate runs silkier and cleaner than its younger sibling with good integration from the extra year. Clean finish with easy fruit and still offering food friendly tannic rumble.
Rating: 17.75/20 (91/100)
