Hugh & Mary Respond To James Halliday
James Halliday recently tasted and enjoyed our 2014 Black Blood series; so much so that he wrote about them in The Weekend Australia Magazine. If you haven't seen the article yet, you can read it in full here. Hugh and Mary have responded with their own sentiments...
“The geological diversity of McLaren Vale, and what that means for this winery, has always enthralled me. Our Black Blood series truly reflects our three unique sites, each of which is special in its own way. James Halliday’s words confirm what we have always known; terroir is alive and well and McLaren Vale is an ideal region to explore this intriguing aspect of winemaking. Join me at our launch of the 2014 vintage. I look forward to showing you exactly how soil predicts wine.” Mary Hamilton
"Making the Black Blood series has been a revelation to all of us here. When you blend grapes from different vineyards you mask the subtleties that the soil brings to the wine. Make single vineyard wines in exactly the same way as each other and it is the ‘big reveal’. Look at the soil and taste the wine. James Halliday did and liked what he saw." Hugh Hamilton
