New Big 2012 Red
Auld and Burton South Australia Shiraz Grenache 2012
Region: South Australia
Our Adelaidean project is now a reality and for these reds we use less favoured varieties such as the Italians, Grenache, Mataro and numerous other odds and sods to make an appealing field blend.
The twist to make this possible is that wines may be sourced from regions as far apart as the Clare Valley, Adelaide Plains, Adelaide Hills, Eden Valley, Langhorne Creek, Currency Creek and even Kangaroo Island.
With less emphasis on the variety and the region and more on the taste and price, all manner of possibilities have emerged. Here is the third release from this interesting project.
In this case we have dipped into a large reserve purchased years ago of wines from 2012. There are only two varieties, though the final composition is from many regions.
