"Lovely wine"- Gary Walsh

Hither and Yon is a rising star of South Australian wine and it's not hard to see why; wines made in a contemporary style with eye-catching labels and all at very reasonable prices, we expect to hear plenty more from Hither and Yon in the future.

The 2016 Hither and Yon Shiraz is another lively, approachable version of McLaren Vale Shiraz packed with bright blueberry, raspberry and pomegranate, flavours on a soft, juicy and medium weight palate, with a soft, round mouth feel. An approachable youthful drinking McLaren, this offers superb value drinking at under $20.

"Blackberry, smoky grilled meat sprinkled with pepper, a bit of purple flowers of something like that. Medium bodied, flavoursome, almost slurpy, but a bit more in it than that, with light tannin, spice and dark fruits, and a tidy finish. Lovely wine, drinking very well young. Doing a good job of it here. Rated: 91 Points Tasted: Jun17 Alcohol: 14% Price: $25 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2017 - 2021" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.

94% Shiraz | 6% Malbec

The Shiraz fruit was hand picked in 2 lots firstly March 2 then March 11. Malbec was picked on March 19. Once fermentation had commenced the must was pumped over 4 times every 24 hours. During ferment the must was kept between 22-26 degrees. Primary fermentation took place for 8-12 days. Once the wines were dry, they were pressed to tank where the free run juice and pressings were combined. We kept the parcels separate and then after 4 months in tank the wines were racked and the final blend was done. 20% off the wine was then transferred to 3-4 year old French Oak puncheons for 2 months. Following cross flow filtration, the wine was bottled on October 10, 2016, sealed under Stelvin screwcap.

Food Match: Lamb chops marinated with rosemary, olive oil and black pepper. Served with a basil dressing, grilled capsicum and zucchini, pink salt and cherry tomatoes.
