Allegiance Wines Single Vineyard McLaren Vale Graciano 2020
Something intriguingly different here. Graciano may not be the most well-known or popular grape in this country, but it is well suited and with efforts like this, expect it to gain more and more attention. From the Sellicks Hill sub-region, planted at the end of last century, the wine spent 18 months in a mix of French puncheons and hogsheads. Deep maroon in colour, this is earthy and concentrated with notes of strawberries, warm earth, fleshy notes and roast meats. Mid-length with firm tannins, the wine exhibits a pleasing freshness and should drink well for five to six years. A fine example of a local Graciano. More please.
