Established in 1976, Petaluma has unlocked the great potential of Riesling from the Hanlin Hill Vineyard in Clare, pioneered the Piccadilly Valley and Mount Barker in the Adelaide Hills and cemented the pedigree of the Evans Vineyard in Coonawarra, South Australia. Winemaker Andrew Hardy and the Petaluma team firmly adhere to the tenet that if the vineyards are great, and the winemaking responsive, the wines will be outstanding. Indeed, Andrew sees his role as custodian of the vineyards.
Petaluma White Label Shiraz is a spicy dry red. Peppery berry fruit, typical of the Adelaide Hills signals a palate of lovely texture, sweet fruit and pepper and spice. Delicious and long, the tannins are evident without dominating. Elegant and brightly flavoured, the soft sandy tannins and black fruits enhance the savoury finish.
