Kincraig Padthaway Shiraz 2014
I must praise the winemakers for these Kincraig triumphs. These great wines capture the maritime weather of the Limestone Coast.
The Limestone Coast is a low lying coastal flat with only gentle rises thus the cooling winds of the Great Southern Ocean can blow well inland, even to the northern boundary of this unusual vineyard region. Plantings at Padthaway are now over 50 years old and being a northern location is warmer and thus ideally suited to Shiraz.
The Kincraig Cabernet came from a cooler vineyard closer to the coast. And you may be interested in the name Kincraig which is the early name for the inland town of Naracoorte. Years ago we released a 2013 Wrattonbully Cabernet under the Kincraig brand but only recently again found the wines we wanted.
The sources for Kincraig can be: Coonawarra, Padthaway, Bordertown, Robe-Mount Benson, Wrattonbully and all point between.
