Ratings
Tony Love, winepilot.com - 94pts "Not surprisingly, the hero varieties out in this Greenock district vineyard are grenache, shiraz and Mataro, here in a 45:45:10 blend harvested from a range of older and newer plantings across several quite different ground profiles. The Alkina team work intensely on separating small vineyard sections according to their geologies – this was the first vintage they made such intricate divisions, picked and vinified individually, fermented with an average of 40% whole bunch by indigenous yeast then matured in a mix of concrete and oak vessels. Fragrant, vibrant and juicy with tasteful fringe benefits like a streak of salt-cured meat and gastronomic faint orange amaro bitters, finishing with a touch of subtle chalkiness. Delicious."
