Why Do We Love This?
THE DISTINCTION, ELEGANCE AND POWER OF LANGHORNE CREEK IS EXPRESSED ENTICINGLY IN GREY LABEL CABERNET SHIRAZ. EVOLVING SINCE THE FIRST 1967 BLEND, IT REMAINS CONSTANT IN THE QUALITY, CHARACTER AND STYLE THAT IS GREY LABEL.
Grey Label Cabernet Shiraz was sourced from a region as unique as the character it bestows upon the wine. The vineyards of Langhorne Creek lie on deep, rich, alluvial soils along the banks of the Bremer River. Flooding of the river provides natural irrigation while depositing silts and sediments, which concentrate the natural eucalyptus oils in the soil and furnish the wine with its distinctive minty allure. Individual vineyard batches were fermented in small open-top fermenters for 5 to 10 days. Plunging and gentle irrigation were used to optimise flavour, colour and tannin extraction, giving the wine rich concentration and depth of fruit while keeping the tannins plush, hallmarks of the Grey Label style. Some parcels completed primary fermentation in barrel, contributing mid-palate texture, while others completed fermentation on skins, providing structural length and focus.
