McLaren Vale, South Australia Winery
GEAR Red, the partner to DERAILER White, is a special release co-ferment of Grenache, Tempranillo and Mataro from the Riverland and our Organic Nero d’Avola from our site in McLaren Vale (40/20/20/20 is the breakdown, respectively). No oak used at all means the fruit is the star here, and it’s super juicy and perfect for BBQ and all around easy drinking affairs. We’re selling it by the case of 12 only, which is how you want this wine, so grab some while it lasts.
‘A ruby red in hue, the wine is heady with the wildness of the Mataro, which flows into ripe bing cherries on the palate. Soft entry with good palate weight, the wine is all about the succulence of the fruit here and juicy goodness. Good natural acidity and bright red fruit keep you into it.’ – Brad Hickey, Vinitor, 08 January 2018.
