'Black Blood' Single Vineyard Series
The Black Blood series are a trio of wines that represent a wonderful journey into McLaren Vale Shiraz. 'Terroir' is a word that encapsulates the taste of a wine due to its unique environment - altitude, climate, rainfall, temperature and soil.
The Black Blood trio are each from a different Hugh Hamilton vineyard with a distinct terroir. We keep everything else as consistent as possible - picking dates, winemaking approach, oak regime, maturation - so you can taste the place.
'Black Blood' I is from the vines in our Cellar Vineyard. Just down the road at our Church Vineyard, the grapes for 'Black Blood' II are grown. 'Black Blood' III hails from our Black Sheep Vineyard, in the elevated soils of Blewitt Springs.
