Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Truly aromatic with upfront strawberries and raspberries dominating the supporting cedar oak.

Flavours and Palate

Bursting with flavour, this wine is soft and juicy with luscious berry fruit taking charge but allowing a subtle confected butterscotch to follow gracefully. The tannins are silky and balanced well with a hint of warm sweet spice.

McLaren Vale, South Australia

McLaren Vale lies nestled between the Mt Lofty Ranges and the rolling white sand beaches of Gulf St Vincent. With its warm Mediterranean climate, relaxed coastal ambience and superb local produce, McLaren Vale is a melting pot of food, wine and the arts: the ultimate epicurean destination. The region is renowned for its soft and velvety Shiraz, with pronounced berry, spice and chocolate flavours.

Ingoldby McLaren Vale Shiraz was matured predominantly in seasoned French and American oak, with some parcels seeing new of each as well.

Kate Hongell - Winemaker

Kate's career began in 1997 when she worked at a family-owned boutique winery in the Yea Valley, Victoria. Since then, Kate has worked on the Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley as well as spending a harvest in California. Kate has been based in South Australia for the last 10 years, where she has focused on the Barossa and McLaren Vale wine regions. She lives on the family vineyard with her husband and three children, Will, Archie and Sophie.
Kate has been making Ingoldby wines since 2011 and is passionate about delivering the high quality wines that Ingoldby drinkers have grown to love and appreciate.
"At Ingoldby we take pride in selecting small parcels of fruit for our wines each vintage that display the truly unique characters that the McLaren Vale region has to offer," says Kate. "I love McLaren Vale's proximity to the sea. Not only is it spectacular, but the ocean has an amazing cooling effect on the grape vines."
