The Range

These back vintage All Saints Estate wines are special wines that are carefully cellared deep inside the castle and released only when they are at their peak for your drinking pleasure.

The Wine

The 2012 vintage shows ripe mixed berry aromas and flavours complemented by savoury spice and herbal notes. It is medium weight with soft, supple fruit in the mid palate and the savoury characters and grainy tannins give a pleasing finish.

Variety

Alias II is a blend of Shiraz with the addition Ruby Cabernet (8%) and Muscadelle (2%), the grape from which Australian Tokay is made. The inclusion of a small percentage of white grapes makes a subtle contribution to the wine; the tannin and colour of the wine are intensified and the flavours and aromas of the wine are rounded out. Documents dating from the early 1900s tell us a similar blend was made at All Saints Estate at the time.

Winemaking

Like for the very best Rhône reds, we picked and fermented both varieties together in our original open waxed vats, hand plunging the cap four times a day. Towards the end of fermentation a few hundred litres were run off to new oak, with the rest given a lengthy post-ferment maceration then pressed off in our 1883 vintage basket press. The wine was aged in small oak barrels for 12 months.

Food Matching

Like the preceding vintages the soft, supple fruit and fine grained tannins of the 2012 Alias II make it an ideal match to various meat dishes. A fillet of venison with red wine and mushrooms would be a good match or, being a softer wine perhaps even roasted duck with plum sauce.

Cellaring Potential

Drink now or cellar for up to 10 years. The wine will likely form a sediment and decanting is recommended.

"A 95/5% blend of muscadelle and shiraz, presumably co-fermented given the brightness of the colour, the lively nature of the finely structured, medium-bodied palate, and the spicy/juicy lift on the finish and aftertaste. A convincing package." Halliday Wine Companion, July 2014
