Ironcloud Estate, Rock of Solitude Purple Patch GSM 2018/21
Get to know: Ironcloud Estate, Rock of Solitude Purple Patch GSM
This wine is a blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre grapes matured in French oak for 10 months. Dive into the glass and you'll met by vibrant and fresh blueberry fruit aromas laced with violet and spice. The palate is juicy and round, medium bodied bright berry fruits, delicious blackberry and plum intermingled with fine lengthy tannin.
Pair this with a slow-cooked melty lamb shank and you're in heaven.
Winemaker Kim Houghton has a firm belief that wines are made in the vineyard, the better the understanding of the vineyard and it’s unique characteristics, the better the wines reflect the soil and the climate. In Ironcloud he has found a team and who share and understand that vision. Across their single 28 hectare vineyard they hand-tend up to ten grape varieties on gently sloping hillsides.
