Massive raspberry and blackberry nose, in typical rich Australian style. Good body with both bright and dark fruit tones. Tannins blend well with the fruit, and both last long without falling apart. A good value, and versatile because it can go with food but also stand on its own.
Big fan of GSM after living for a time in Australia and this is a good one! It is well rounded and has nice fruit but ends well too. Everyone who's tried it at my house, wanted seconds...
A blend inspired by the opera term for an improvised personal expression at the end of an Aria. this blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre blends together the array of flavors and terroirs of the estate, as well as being driven to create a common name for Grenache blends that are unique to the McLaren Vale appellation. Flavors of Blackberry, bing cherry, mulberry, plums, nuts and subdued oak flavors slowly tapering off to a lingering finish.
Wine Maker Notes
The Cadenzia Ensemble celebrating excellence and individual expression of McLaren Vale Grenache.
The name ‘Cadenzia’ has musical origins. Karl Haas wrote, “A Cadenza serves as a vehicle for a brief
solo display of brilliance in the style of improvisation; it should be indigenous to the thematic material and musical mood of the movement of which it is a part.” McLaren Vale winemakers have been similarly inspired to celebrate the opportunity, after vintage, to blend an exceptional wine around the Grenache variety. The themes of harmony, innovation, improvisation, excitement and energy have
been carried from the music world to the world of winemaking.
