Out of stock
Stephen George wears 3 winemakers ™ hats. one for his Ashton Hills wines coming from his estate vineyard high in the Adelaide Hills. one for Galah wines and the other for the iconic Wendouree in Clare.
Prized fruit for this wine was sourced from the Wendouree vineyard (mostly from the newer 1911 plantings “ now 99 years old!).
Stephen George said Wendouree vineyard is an incredible piece of dirt even in severe drought the vineyard is green when the rest of Clare is irrigating madly “ the dry grown vineyard roots have burrowed down so deep over the years to find water and all the trace elements needed This impeccable source indicates the wines ™ promise big and chewy without being syrupy. sweet. woody and alcoholic. and with years ahead of them ..the 02 Galah table wines could easily cellar for another 15 years Stephen George calls this his favourite of the Galah Wines.
This classic blend has exciting cassis and eucalypt aromas. with marmitey and leather characters now developing over an under layer of great soft tannin and acidity. suggesting it can handle more time in the cellar. Other vintages also provide plenty of adventure. 94 points Tony Love. The Advertiser April 09.
Decant this wine for at least 2 3 hours (this is still tight on opening) or cellar carefully up to 2020. Serve with hearty meat dishes. Limited.
