Farmers and Growers 'The Ploughman' SA Classic Dry Red 2013
Region: South Australia
The Ploughman is 100% from premium regions of South Australia from the large sweep of vineyards grown between the Southern Flinders and Kangaroo Island. I have little doubt that this is one of the great wine region on earth. We buy parcels of wine every vintage and these accumulate over many vintages to become our precious reserves or holdings of bulk wine.
From this stock we blend wines that are special for the prices asked.
This Ploughman then represents these discoveries of wines we think were undervalued in the market place The Ploughman contains a large percentage of Cabernet but also other varieties and the flavour has been lifted with a small amount of wine from younger vintages.
We want deep colours and full flavours as that is our style while the hard part is to add some mystery to the taste and this is often found by the addition of a less common variety such as Mataro or an Italian variety. We made just over 100 cases.
