2016 Maris Sol Shiraz Tempranillo Cabernet
Winemakers are always fidgeting around in the cellar with small and often quite unique batches of wines, mostly as trials to see what is possible in our portfolio wines.
Commonly, the winemaker will tuck them into the back of the winery with no one awares! The Maris Sol label is a format in which we can bottle very small parcels that have to fit the criteria of being both unique and interesting. The more obscure….the better!
The Maris Sol blend is a hedonistic blend of perfume, juicy ripe fruit and structured tan-nin. The Tempranillo clone is the requena, imported from Spain in 1964, the Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon clones have stood the test of time in Western Australia, clones valued for generous weight and depth.
