This wine honours the most famous of all cricket battles, the Ashes. Ricky’s career against England was uncompromising, with no quarter asked or given of his opponents. From 35 tests played, he captained 18, scored eight centuries and 2,476 test runs.
Distinctive McLaren Vale characteristics shine through The Pinnacle. Sweet, soft, warm tannins whilst the palate is rich berry fruits, black pepper, nutmeg and cloves. A big, rich and complex Shiraz, with finesse, texture and elegance. This wine pays homage not only to McLaren Vale, but to the pinnacle of the cricketing world, the Ashes.
2018 was one of the best vintages in McLaren Vale in recent years, good winter rains set up the start of growing season. Vines grew quickly with an unusually dry summer and early autumn.
