The 2021 vintage in McLaren Vale was exceptional. Vineyards in the region were generally more productive, producing higher yields at harvest compared to recent years. Most importantly, the increase in vine yields was combined with excellent quality fruit.

Shiraz grapes were hand harvested and whole-bunch fermented and placed in open fermenters to sit on top of Riesling skins for 11 days. The cap was hand plunged twice daily before being gently pressed into a mix of mostly old French oak barriques to complete fermentation. The wine remained in barrel for 18 months before being racked and bottled without filtration or fining. The wine is made with 5% Riesling 95% Shiraz.

Elena Brooks’ mother worked in a winery in communist Bulgaria and by 16 Elena had made her first Chardonnay. Now settled in Mclaren Vale with partner Zar Brooks, she is highly awarded and makes exceptional wines in a simple way from a suite of beautiful old vineyards from the Barossa down into McLaren Vale.

This Shiraz-Riesling blend pairs well with a variety of dishes, including meats and spicy cuisines, where its fruity, smooth, and savoury profile can complement the flavours of the food.

Blends of Shiraz and Riesling combine the deep colour and spicy, fruity flavours of Shiraz with the aromatic freshness and minerality of Riesling.

McLaren Vale is one of South Australia’s oldest and largest wine regions with some vines over 100 years old. It offers a variety of reds and whites, reflecting its diverse climate and soils. Mclaren Vale is renowned for Shiraz, but it's 
also a hotspot for premium Grenache, Cabernet, and Mediterranean varieties like Fiano, Vermentino, Tempranillo, and Sangiovese.
