The Good Doctor's Tonic 2015

McLaren Vale

A McLaren Vale GP by day, the Doctor is a fully signed up ‘shed’ winemaker by night. His tonic is BIG, bold and dark – a unique and delicious blend of locally sourced Tannat (rare), Cabernet and Shiraz. We’re not sure what it’ll cure, but it’s tasty.

Being a doctor can be stressful, so what better way to unwind than tread a few grapes, hand plunge a few vats and guide your precious wines into barrel. That’s the creative path Dr Matt Cooper took, and, with a few grower friends in premium McLaren Vale and the cooler Adelaide Hills, he was well set up. During the growing season he keeps an eye on a few rows of vines and picks out the richest, ripest grapes for his tonic. He makes wine the old fashioned way – on a miniature scale with basket presses and open topped fermenters. He skilfully blended dark, ripe Tannat (renowned for Madiran in South West France) with Cabernet and Shiraz. It’s a rich mouthful with bold fruit, spicy oak and mint. Decant an hour before serving with a Sunday roast.
