  • THE BRIEF
  • From five-star rated, Mclaren Vale winery, Chalk Hill, comes the Lotus Series - a range of wines based on the concepts of Wisdom, Purity and Compassion. The Shiraz, or Blue Lotus, embodies Wisdom.

    All we know is that this is a wine that punches well above its weight. Bold, dark fruit flavours, coupled with toasty oak notes, and sweet baking spices, flow onto an elegantly melded palate, with fine-boned tannin structure that setup for a lingering, savoury finish. Classic McLaren Vale Shiraz, and an absolute bargain at this price. Wisdom indeed.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • 2015 was a low yielding vintage producing high quality Shiraz fruit. Selected from three of Chalk Hill's premium vineyards aged between 15-25 years.

    The Shiraz grapes were harvested at full flavour and tannin ripeness, then destemmed to fermenters to keep many whole berries in the ferment for fresh fruit flavours and to maintain soft tannins. The wine was then aged in older French oak barrels for 10 months prior to bottling.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    With bold aromas of leather and black fruit, the Blue Lotus Shiraz is a seductively perfumed wine with a bright and vibrant full mouth feel. Lifted plum and blackberry aromas, lead to a medium weight palate with excellent depth of flavour, toasty oak, and an appealing layer of spicy complexity throughout.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Chalk Hill is a family owned wine company dedicated to making small batch, hand crafted wines of distinction. The Harvey family grape growing heritage goes back six generations in South Australia, and we now have six vineyards spread across the beautiful McLaren Vale wine region. Our home vineyard was first planted in 1897 and these century old vines still bear fruit today. It is our family commitment to make wines that reveal the unique place that is McLaren Vale, and to show our efforts from the vineyard to the bottle. To us, wine is more than just a drink, it is a reflection of our place and our life.
