Imprimata aims to be in the best expression of this McLaren Vale vineyard. In the case of the inaugural vintage, it is a blend of 80% Shiraz and 20% Petite Sirah. The Tahbilk clone of Shiraz tends to produce wines that are reminiscent of the northern Rhone revealing more lifted violet and spice character. Petite Sirah is naturally higher in acid tannin and color bringing structure and minerality to the blend. The wine is made by Ben Glaetzer who shares Hammershlag's vision of wines that walk the line between power and elegance always finding balance between the two.
Blend: 80% Shiraz, 20% Petite Sirah
Dark and chewy, with a green olive note prominent in the mix. Offers intensity and presence, letting the ripe blackberry flavors come through on the long finish.
