Soaring Kite Adelaide Hills Shiraz 2016

In 2014 we had a young lad from Oregon come across for Harvest who was mad on the idea of making Shiraz from the ‘Hills, especially once he’d seen the Darwin Vineyard up in Kuitpo. I must have been having one of my not overly interested days so when he asked if he could grab the mic with this parcel, I waved him through and wished him best. For a long time the 14 ess&see Shiraz was my favourite wine in our stable and once he went home I obviously took it for my own label and had great pleasure extolling my winemaking techniques over the following years until it sold out. We didn’t get the fruit in 15, but we did in 16 and pretty much followed Adam’s recipe, for some reason the vineyard is now a paddock and that’s sad.

About Soaring Kite

Established in 2005, Soaring Kite is the Adelaide Hills project from the young crew at Loom Wine. Mainly allured by Chardonnay and Pinot, on the odd occasion they’ve also been tempted to open up a fermenter or two for some Shiraz…much to the wonderment of their winemaking colleagues.

Aromatics: Spice, herbs and a touch of oak.
Palate: Bright and lovely ripe raspberry, blackberry and plum with tingling tannins.
Finish: Pleasant warming finish
Cellaring: Best before 2028

    A little pepper on the tongue, a little heat up the nose, a perfect red for a winter night. It warms the spirit and the toes.

    Could drink a little or a lot of this. Feels nice in my mouth…
