Ponting 'The Milestone' 127 Shiraz 2019
About This Wine
About This Wine
A fan of South Australian wine, proprietor Ricky Ponting knew that teaming up with winemaker Ben Riggs would be an excellent choice. Sourcing fruit from all over the McLaren Vale's 40 or so different geologies.
2019 was a warm and dry year for McLaren Vale, along with the low yields of the vineyard, the personality of this vintage has been voluptuous and juicy.
Open top fermenters were used for this Shiraz, before heading to barrel (35% of which was new). Both French and American oak barrels were used for this wine (80%/20%). Blending of vineyard parcels took place three months prior to bottling, resulting in a juicy, powerful and perfumed style.
