2011 McLaren Vale Scarce Earth Shiraz Launch Saturday 27th April

Tickets are available for the launch of the 2011 McLaren Vale 2011 Scarce Earth Single Vineyard Shiraz. This is the third release of these wines. In the words of Stacey who works at the McLaren Vale Grape Wine and Tourism Assoc, please find details about the Scarce Earth project below:

Scarce Earth is an initiative of the McLaren Vale wine region exploring and celebrating the geological climatic and soil diversity of the region. All wines come from a single block, a small plot of land with a unique flavour profile and personality.

Join us for a unique opportunity to taste the new release 2011 Vintage McLaren Vale Scarce Earth single vineyard Shiraz wines from 12:00 pm – 4pm at the beautiful grounds of the McLaren Vale & Fleurieu Visitor Centre on the 27th April 2013. Tickets are $25 and include all tastings, tasting notes, master classes and refreshments.

Launch April 27th 2013


Joch will be on duty all day, showing off our 2011 Battle of Bosworth 2011 Braden’s Scarce Earth and 2011 Chanticleer Scarce Earth Single Vineyard Shiraz. You can compare and contrast our two wines, as well as taste over 20 other McLaren Vale shiraz. Our wines are both made using Shiraz from the same underlying geologies, but with radically different soil types. Chanticleer is on the free-draining stony loam soils, and Braden’s comes from the Bay of Biscay black cracking soils.
