The term Cadenzia comes from the musical term Cadenza, meaning an outstanding virtuoso improvisation, performed by the chief soloist towards the end of an orchestral performance.

Unique to McLaren Vale, Cadenzia has been introduced as an annual winemaking challenge that acknowledges the outstanding skills of the region’s winemakers. While there are clear guidelines for Cadenzia, which must include more Grenache than any other variety, winemaking improvisation, innovation and blending skills remain the foundations of the movement.

In true improvisational style, this wine is a blend of 55% 2004 dry-grown Grenache and 45% 2002 Shiraz - a most interesting wine!

Colour: Deep red with purple hues
Aroma: A complex blend of red and black fruit aromas with savory notes and a
smokey bacon background
Palate: Medium bodied fruit medley with supporting vanillin oak and smooth
and silky tannins
