Silver Wings Mourvedre Blend Vincenzo O.V. Old Vines 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

100% single-vineyard fruit from the Conte Vineyards in Shepparton Central Victoria. This is the first release under the Silver Wings label from fruit sourced form the late Vincenzo Conte's old block. The vineyard consists of plantings of approximately 60% Mourvedre and the balance Shiraz from the early 1960's. Hand picked, the wines were aged in small French & American oak for a smooth, balanced flavor.

Silver Wings:

Since leaving Cleveland Estate in 2003 (after 25 years), I have been producing a highly regarded range of wines for export to the U.S.A. under the label ‘Marquee Artisan Wines’. In pursuit of my passion for making long-lived Single Estate wine, I established my own label ‘Silver Wings Wines’ highlighting a wine from Mourvedre and Shiraz fruit grown on old vines in the Shepparton region of Central Victoria. Named after Vincenzo Conte, who immigrated to Australia in 1952 and later planted the vineyard, it has become my privilege to work with his old vines to produce outstanding quality wine in his memory. The first vintage 2004 release, achieved significant recognition from the Australian and International Wine Show circuit and subsequent vintages are made in the traditional time honoured way, to ensure great cellar aging capacity. I believe through expression of soil and fruit concentration from this site, the “Vincenzo’s Old Vines” will become recognized as one of the great wines of Australia. I have also continued to release Sparkling wines made from aged Cellar Reserve stocks from my previous site, Cleveland Estate in the Macedon Ranges. In addition I offer rare and interesting wines from my personal and private collections from my “Cellar Door” in a restored Art Deco warehouse at Munster Terrace, North Melbourne. My wines are not made available through commercial retail outlets so visitation offers a unique experience of tasting and sales of a different and truly exciting range of wines on the edge of Melbourne CBD.

Tasting Notes:

Rich berry fruits lead the way to broad earthy characters with hints of "mocha". There is a concentration of mouth filling, spicy fruit characters which are balanced by fine drying tannins leaving a great length of finish. This wine has lovely balance now but is destined to improve for many years if cellared correctly.
