McLaren Vale is THE place for Australia’s powerhouse reds – it “continues to produce intense, complex and seriously ageworthy wines,” says The Wine Companion. And this one was crafted to showcase exactly what the region has to offer. Named for the rich, diverse soils that lend depth and complexity to McLaren Vale’s wines, Dirtyrich is a classic Aussie blend of berry-packed Shiraz (60 percent) and dark-fruited Cabernet Sauvignon (40 percent), with a hint of trademark McLaren Vale earthiness. Last vintage, it scored quite the list of accolades from top critics, including a slew of golds 90+ point ratings. The 2015 is equally as impressive, already boasting a double-gold medal from the China Wine & Spirits Best Value Awards.
Dirtyrich comes from renowned Penny’s Hill – rated a 5-red-star winery by the country’s most respected critic, James Halliday – and talented winemaker, Alexia Roberts. Alexia aims to craft fruit-driven, elegant and refined estate-grown wines that express the unique character of the land. With nine trophies and 35 gold medals to her name, we’d say she succeeds. And in a great year like 2015, noted for its vibrant, bright fruit flavors, Alexia’s skill really shines.
Look forward to attractive aromas of blackberry, dark plum and spicy cedar, leading to a lively, rounded palate with plenty of black raspberry, black cherry and plum flavors.
