2014 Mosaic of Dreams
Grenache Mourvèdre Syrah
Once again there is method to our madness.
A boisterous nose of stewed wild strawberries, a freshly oiled balustrade, mildly scented by wild fennel seeds - foraged from the roadside. A freshly baked orange and poppy seed cake straight from the oven. Fine boned, silky tannins glide across the palate, dancing with the fruit in seamless fashion. This wine is elegant and graceful but with a bucket load of intrigue
The blends were crafted with a respect for the historic relevance of the varieties expressed through the equally arid landscape of McLaren Vale. We bear witness to the grace of the Southern Rhone - Grenache, Mourvèdre and Shiraz - in the sophistication and subtlety of the Mosaic of Dreams. This wine can take you to the epicentre of the glorious Rhone with everlasting fields of wild sage, sunflowers and lavender and endless blue skies. Steeped in tradition; the story unfolds through the cante and baile of the flamenco dancers.
We foster finesse over power in these wines. Concentration is only one measure of presence: the everlasting reward is in the discovery of nuances as the aromatics unfold as fleeting as a kiss. The power lies in the perfume.
