The Range

The Alias range encompasses our vision to produce something different, interesting and totally out of the ordinary whilst reflecting our usual elegance and style. A limited bottling of only 300 cases ensures something very special.

The Wine

The 2015 vintage shows ripe mixed berry aromas and flavours complemented by savoury spice and herbal notes. It is medium weight with powerful berry fruit in the mid palate that is balanced with the savoury, spice characters and fine structural tannins from the French oak.

Variety

Alias II is a blend of Shiraz with the addition of Muscadelle (4%). 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 is traditional in its home in France, we picked and fermented both varieties together in our original open waxed vats, hand plunging the cap 2-3 times a day. At the completion of fermentation the wine was pressed off using our 1883 vintage basket press. The wine was aged in French oak barriques for 12 months.

Food Matching

The soft, supple fruit and fine grained tannins of 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 6 years. The wine will likely form a sediment and decanting is recommended.

"The best-known example of this 95/5% shiraz/muscadelle blend was by the late Peter Lehmann during his time at Saltram, and the 50-60yo wines ex his cellar show just how well they can age. This full-bodied wine will need 10+ years in the cellar for its robust tannins to soften their grip."
