The Brainchild of Chalk Hill Wines director Tom Harvey, the Alpha Crucis Winemakers Series is a collection of six individual wines, made by six winemakers, with grapes sourced from a single vineyard in the McLaren Vale wine region.The goal of the Winemakers' Series is to examine the influence of a winemaker on how a wine may taste.The six winemakers were chosen for their dedication to producing small batch, handcrafted wines of distinction. They were each given one row in every six from our Heritage Block vineyard, each winemaker determining the date of harvest, the technique, method of fermenting and the means of maturing the wine to reflect their individual preferences.
As tempting as it may be to rate these wines in terms of quality, this was not the aim of the initiative. Rather, the winemakers' objective was to make a wine that reflects their winemaking philosophy in a style they find enjoyable.We recommend you taste these wines as a set with good friends and family.
The 2014 Alpha Crucis Winemakers Series comes beautifully presented in a handcrafted wooden box.
