Synonymous with quality, our flagship wine ‘The Aberfeldyâ€? has earnt and maintains a Langtons Classification of ‘Excellentâ€?and has been referred to as “Clare Valley’s Grangeâ€?

The bold, yet classy 2018 Aberfeldy has a vibrant deep ruby red hue with aromas of ripe berries, cherry, plum and chocolate accompanied by clove, nutmeg and vanilla oak derived characters. The palate is full bodied with dark berry conserve flavours and firm tannin generated from the warm, dry growing season leading in to vintage. The wine has persistent length of sweet fruit and oak, with a balance of power and great finesse. It is elegant enough to enjoy now, yet also has the structure to be kept for up to 25 years in good conditions. We recommend decanting, allowing at least one hour prior to serving for maximum enjoyment.

Winemaking Notes

Components of the final blend were fermented to dryness on skins and left for 14 days before being pressed. A portion of pressings were returned to the wine for added structure and to improve ageing potential. 24 months resting in a mixture of new American and French oak hogsheads followed before blending, fining and bottling. The wine is aged further in bottle prior to release.

Growing Conditions

The 2018 vintage was warm and dry with little rainfall throughout the maturation period. The low winter rainfall and a warm temperate summer restricted yields and produced crops with small berries, concentrating the flavour and colour. The best Shiraz blocks of the vintage were hand-selected by our team and ripened steadily to perfect maturity.

Food Pairing

The Aberfeldy is best enjoyed with a range of red meat-based dishes with complementary sauces/gravies.
