About Lloyd Brothers
The Lloyd Brothers are third generation vignerons following in the footsteps of their grandparents who first planted vines in McLaren Vale during the 1960’s.
Careful selection in the vineyard by handpicking, is followed by careful handling at the winery using traditional techniques, to create a range of wines that express the characteristics of this wonderful region and the Shiraz variety.
This single vineyard Shiraz was hand-picked from the best sections of the Lloyd brother’s 30 acre Shiraz vineyard, located high above the township of McLaren Vale. After fermentation in small batch open fermenters, the wine spent 21 months in a blend of new and seasoned French and American Oak.
All the best fruit from the vineyard was selected for the White Chalk Shiraz. It shows lovely rich, ripe dark berry and plum cake characteristics on the palate with mocha overtones, backed up with a hint of spice, liquorice and black pepper. This wine will happily age for 5-10 years.
