Wine description: By the Bend of a Brook is a vineyard planted to produce single block wines, where just about everything from the pruning, weeding & picking is done by the sweat of manual labour and a barking Kelpie. Only this fruit is in Yarn Spinner.
The classic Australian blend, balancing the firmness of Cabernet with the richness of Shiraz, soft, mature, approachable and velvet smooth.
The wine is named from a convergence of vineyards where neighbours meet, chat, clink glasses and spin yarns, many of them sometimes true.
At a vineyard altitude of 400 metres above sea level, the Macclesfield area of the Adelaide Hills allows grapes to develop to full ripeness while retaining fresh cool-climate acidity and elegance.
Serve with: Cheese, crusty bread, olives and friends.
