Dune Blewitt Springs Shiraz 12Pk 2019
The next Generation of the Lloyd family (Coriole) planting their flag in the Vale. A new project from brothers Duncan and Peter Lloyd, Dune wines sees them step out from the shadow of Coriole wines. Sourcing fruit from a single vineyard in the Blewitt Springs sub-region of Mclaren Vale. Organic in conversion, this sandy vineyard has been completely re-imagined since being purchased by the brothers in 2009. Planting and grafting over southern Mediterranean varietals has seen them create a unique range of blends alongside some classic and so2 free shiraz.
Dune Blewitt Springs Shiraz 2019
Halliday Top 100 Wines of 2020
Fermented with a mix of whole-bunch, whole-berry and crushed fruit. This really sings; it proclaims its Blewitt Springs birth with energetic, spicy, savoury notes threaded through predominantly black fruits, backed and lengthened by fine, but firm, tannins. Remarkable wine.
