The Lane Block 5 Adelaide Hills Shiraz

The Lane Block 5 Shiraz 2017

Adelaide Hills, South Australia   |    750ml   |    14.5%
Over the past decade, The Lane Vineyard has built an excellent reputation for producing some of the finest wines in South Australia's Adelaide Hills wine region. With a focus on delivering approachable 'lunch-weight' examples of the region's hero wine varietals, their wines are brimming with flavour and loads of varietal character. This family-owned and operated vineyard achieves this while maintaining a minimal intervention philosophy and an unwavering commitment to sustainable practices. 

This 2017 The Lane Block 5 Shiraz is another brilliant example of Adelaide Hills Shiraz; beautifully perfumed and approachable, the palate is intensely flavoured with red fruit and dark chocolate flavours and spice, all sitting on a medium-bodied palate. A lovely drinking Shiraz that offers plenty of appeal in the short to medium term. 

"Chocolate, minty perfume, spice, black fruits. Medium-bodied, supple and smooth, some meaty savoury flavours, but mainly chocolaty and flavoursome, with a pleasing sense of poise and finesse. Lovely from start to finish. Rated: 92 Points Tasted: Oct18 Alcohol: 13.5% Price: $25 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2018 - 2026" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.

Located high in the Adelaide Hills at up to 500 meters, over the past few years the Lane Vineyard has emerged as one of the most promising wineries in this acclaimed wine region. The hot sunny days and cold evenings in the region, naturally imparts a mineral freshness and well balanced acidity to the grapes grown at The Lane Vineyards.

The Lane Vineyard Block Series show true varietal character and the influence of the terroir of The Lane Vineyard. Block numbers indicate the patch within the vineyard where the fruit is grown, while the minimum intervention winemaking allows the vineyard to do the talking. The Block Series are stylish, fresh, fruit driven wines with a true sense of place.

A blend of some of our oldest plantings with selections of our close planted patches. There is minimal oak influence, so it really is the fruit doing all the work. Fantastic texture (but not too much) underpins the smooth lines of this contemporary, incredibly drinkable Shiraz which balances sweet and savoury characters perfectly.
