The 2018 Apostle heralds change, and that change is Mclaren Vale leaning away from Shiraz as it's poster child.
Carob, dust, leather, spice and blackcurrant on the nose with earthy tannins, velvet, musk and flavours of raw cacao on the palate.
Shiraz - harvested by hand in the early hours of the morning, destemmed and fermented wild for 10 days on skins. / Grenache - harvested by hand in the early morning, fermented as 100% whole bunches with footstomping and hand plunging until dry. / Carignan - Harvested by hand in the early morning, 60% whole bunch fermentation with the remainder crushed on top, gentle working of the cap during fermentation. Everything was aged separately for 30 months in seasoned barriques and hogsheads then blended prior to bottling.
Barbecue'd meats or aubergine parmigiana.
