Gemtree, Shiraz Dragon's Blood McLaren Vale (2018)

$16.00 Excl. tax
EAN Code:

A bold and full-bodied Shiraz that displays notes of blueberry, black currant and a rich earthy touch. No added sulfites is a bonus!

Paul and Jill Buttery established the Gemtree vineyards in McLaren Vale in 1980. Today the estate is owned and run by their daughter Melissa Brown, (Biodynamic Viticulturist) and her husband, Mike Brown (Chief Winemaker). The estate is a self-contained biosphere. Gum and eucalyptus trees are planted throughout the property. Free roaming sheep keep any weeds in check and fertilize the soil. They channel the natural energy in the earth with totems and organic material throughout the vineyards. The use of solar and recycled materials minimizes the impact on their carbon footprint. For the Butterys and Browns, it is not just about winemaking… it is about setting new standards for sustainable, generational farming.

Fermented with natural yeast in open top fermenters. Aged for 12 months on its lees in French oak 10% new. Bottled with minimal sulfur.

FOOD PAIRING: Beef stew, lamb shank, or a simple cheeseburger!
