‘The Bloodline’ wines are named in honour of my Grandfather who was meticulous in the recording of the bloodlines of his Angus cattle in the Clare Valley to ensure only the highest quality of breeding and pedigree were maintained in his herds. Like the bloodlines of cattle, so are the selection of parcels of wines to blend together to create a wine of quality and distinction. ‘The Bloodline’ wine blends will be involve blending together carefully selected parcels of distinct Clare Valley red wines to produce a wine that has greater complexity and distinction.
Sussex Squire The Bloodline Shiraz Cabernet 2021 is a blend of 55% Shiraz from the Windmill and Estate Blocks and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. A low yielding and elegant vintage in the Clare Valley presented lovely depth and flavour. These parcels of wine were blended together to produce a classic Australian blend. As a result, it combines the savoury red fruit flavours of the Shiraz with the black cherries and blackcurrant of the Cabernet, and it fills the mouth with a combination of flavours and tannin that balance beautifully together and linger on the palate.
