Luca Vineyards Vinrock GSM 2016
Grenache Shiraz Mourv?dre McLaren Vale
Next day dispatch available on this item!
Lifted savoury oak and intense raspberry on the nose. Dark savoury characteristics with an abundance of warm bramble fruits and chocolatey sweet spice. Generous palate weight with silky tannins and a persistent spicey oak finish. A delightful, elegant wine to serve now but will continue to improve with 5 years of cellaring. Pair with braised lamb shanks.
Some of the awards that this wine has been picking up
Luca Vineyard was established in 1998 by Don Luca, but it wasn't until 2004 that the winery moved away from contracted work and began producing wine under their own, very personal, label. That same label actually shows Don planting the very first Shiraz cutting, back in 1998 at the beginning of it all. This is demonstrative of Luca Vineyard's deeply rooted philosophy of simple appreciation for the place and it's people; "we grow to the strength of the region". The Vineyard works towards lower yields with higher quality, and always towards more sustainable viticultural practices and a very proud regional air. Under the Luca Vineyard winemaker, Michael Fragos, the recognition of Luca wines has grown, year by year, as their vines have.
