A wild grass, the Love Grass, often grows in the vineyards surrounding the winery. During vintage, the sticky, Velcro-like, long stemmed flowers of the Love Grass affectionately attach themselves to the vineyard workers’ socks.
This Shiraz will linger with you in much the same way as the sticky flowers do and, as such, the family thought it fitting to name this wine ‘The Love Grass’.
The palate is juicy with weighty, red-fruited Shiraz dominated by plums, rhubarb, cherries, strawberries, mulberry, smoked bacon, white pepper and flower characters then a level of black currants and fragrant spice from the Cabernet and Petit Verdot appear.
On the second sip a lovely mulberry tar-like character of Merlot starts to fill the palate with vivid, deep-red cherry flavours mixed with a hint of sage leaf, cloves and turmeric from the Petit Verdot which fans out across the finish with a grippy but polished finish.
While the label does state ‘Shiraz’ small parcels of fruit of other varieties are also included (3% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, 3% Grenache, 2 % Petit Verdot 2% Tempranillo and 1% Pinot Noir)
