A powerful marriage of Australia's signature grape, Shiraz, and top winemakers the Scarpantonis. Winners of over 500 awards, they know how to capture all its richness with McLaren Vale sophistication. Enjoy oceans of smooth dark fruit and spice.
Rated 5 Stars by Halliday, winners of the coveted Jimmy Watson Trophy and hundreds of awards besides, Scarpantoni is one of the best. No wonder "a flurry of excitement greets every new red" from them (Penguin Wine Guide). In 1952 they arrived from Italy and settled in the McLaren Vale. 20 years later, Michael and Filippo Scarpantoni were born at Oxenberry farm. They still love this land and make wines that are a reflection of their home ‘terroir’ – with a good slug of natural South Aussie exuberance too! Pedler Creek Shiraz is from a plot right at the heart of the McLaren Vale where the first settlers farmed. It uses three different Shiraz clones blended to show off this grape’s blackberry and smoky liquorice flavours. Bring on the steak.
"Delicious Shiraz, smooth, fruity and lovely vanilla undertones. Lighter (in a good way) than some"
