Description

A Grenache/Shiraz/Mourvedre blend with a silky and refined style. 2017 Clare vintage was one of the latest in a decade to kick off due to the rainfall during the early growing season. The very wet winter and spring was followed followed a sunny spell which allowed the vines to dry out in the summer. This long, dry ripening period allowed the fruit to intensify colour while retaining the more savoury, elegant tannins Clare is known for. Calcannia was rated a 5 Star winery by James Halliday, 2019 Chocolate and ripe raspberries have a hint of meatiness on the nose. These aspects blend harmoniously together with a flavour profile of dark berries, bitter chocolate and cured meats. Its rounded character makes it easier drinking than the abv would suggest. Food Pairing: Antipasti, rich pork and ripe cheese are ideal. Will cellar until 2025.
