Sands of Time Shiraz is our premium Shiraz sourced from a single vineyard on the deep sand slopes of our McLaren Vale Hastwell & Lightfoot estate.
Over millennia the prevailing westerly winds slowly built a mantle of coastal sand across our region, drifting into the valleys and building up on the ridges turning them into dunes. Now we are 10 kilometres from the coast.
These sands, over time have become the primary influence in the style of our wines. There is a finesse, an elegance and balance of flavours that sets the Semaphore Sands vineyards apart from much of the region.
The Sands of Time Single Vineyard Shiraz is a reflection of its source, with small batch fermentation and a judicious use of oak.
When it comes to food it will marry delightfully with saltbush fed lamb, slow-cooked in the oven.
A wine made for eating.
