Out of stock
Duane Coates is one of the quiet achievers of the Australian Wine Scene ( Masters in Oenology and an MBA from Adelaide University & soon to become a Master of Wine). His winemaking philosophy is simple the highest quality fruit from sustainable vineyards ( some organic), harvest when properly ripe and a natural winemaking approach (minimal intervention wild yeasts, unfined, no additions of tannin, enzyme and acid). Huon Hooke said Every wine I ‘ve tasted of McLaren Vale’s Duane Coates has been excellent…” Highly impressive wines – a style that bridges the gap between fruit driven Australian style and savoury complex wines of old world Europe.
This single vineyard Syrah (organically grown in foothills of Wilunga. McLaren Vale) was matured for 28 mths in French oak which has given spice and silkiness to tannins. This is a rich. profoundly complex wine made in a traditional. old world style with some bottle age
