Dune Paliomera is a bold, juicy Syrah from McLaren Vale in Australia packed with ripe red berries & plums. Some fennel & dusty tannins balance out the fruit, keeping it earthy & rounded. There is lovely fresh acidity from the Sangiovese addition, but Syrah is still definitely the star of the show.
Paliomera is produced from a very low cropping Shiraz vineyard, which is blended with a small amount of Sangiovese. The fruit is hand-picked, de-stemmed and undergoes fermentation in small open fermenters. No additions of any kind .
The result is a lively and fresh wine that shows depth and concentration.
Producing a wine with no SO2 additions is not without its challenges so Dune aim to produce the very best quality fruit they can – the idea being that if the fruit naturally has a good balance of ripeness, acidity, sugar then the eventual wine has a better chance of holding up over time.
