Why do we love this wine?

This season, two great houses, two legends of Vitis vinifera have each given of themselves a child. Deus Ex Liquida Grenache Shiraz - nourished on blocks of iron, sandstone and clay, the essence of their blood and pride of the Vale. In conjunction with the brothers Leask, we’re proud to introduce our finest production yet. And this magnum is set to be a blockbuster of epic proportions.

In May 2014, John Clark and Adam Trovarelli contacted the Leask Bros and shared a desire to create a premium wine showcasing the essence of McLaren Vale - grenache and shiraz. The Leask boys knew exactly in which direction to head - to the foothills of the Vale on a mission for structural elegance and medium bodied, pretty fruit. The quest was begun for a fresh and youthful wine grounded in earth and savoury depth. 

Grenache triumphs. Sourced from gnarly bush vines and delivering vibrant raspberry, cardamom spice and perfumed allure. Shiraz is the workhorse, the backbone, placing grenache on a rail and taking it for a ride. Savoury and spicy first, black cherry swirls around a twist of orange rind. Baci chocolate, subtle cedar and saline tannins are the memorable encore.

Medium bodied and intense, a wine of balance and poise - this is McLaren Vale in full-blown glory. Raise a goblet and feast upon rich food - salted pork belly, chorizo, burnt butter and sage.

Indulge and revel, for the world is your playground.
