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

Savoury, with soft, supple fruit and fine grained tannins, Alias II is a step away from over-extracted blockbuster reds. Ripe mixed berry aromas and flavours complemented by savoury spice, and herbs notes. It is medium weight with soft, supple fruit in the mid palate and the savoury characters and grainy tannins give a pleasing astringency to the finish.

Variety

Alias II is a blend of Shiraz with the addition of five percent Muscadelle, 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

The winemaking mirrors that of the best Rhone reds in that the two varieties are picked and fermented together. We use our classic old open fermenters, hand plunge the cap and press the wine off in our 1873 vintage basket press. 

A few hundred litres are run off to new oak towards the end of the fermentation, with the rest given a lengthy post-ferment maceration. The wine was aged in small oak barrels for 12 months. One third of the barrels were new and all were coopered from oak sourced from a range of French forests.

Food Matching

Like the preceding vintages the soft, supple fruit and fine grained tannins of Alias II make it an ideal match to various meat sides. Try it with slow roasted leg of lamb with rosemary or perhaps a Fillet of Venison with red wine and mushrooms.
