Alpha Crucis Winemaker Series 2013 - The ultimate present !!

The Alpha Crucis Winemaker Series in one the coolest and most interesting concepts in wine, it is all about the influence that a wine maker has on the same parcel of fruit. 

This project has been in operation since 2010, and has always been super popular with our passionate wine customers. 

The concept: 

6 winemakers, 3 males and 3 females, and given access to the same premium Shiraz fruit from McLaren Vale in South Australia. Each winemaker can pick the fruit when he or she wants to , and then controls all variables in the winery. Such as maceration and ferment time, time on skins, what type, age and length of time in oak, and so many more variables. 

The result: Six totally different wines made from the same vineyard, showing the huge influence that a winemaker has in the winery. 

This wine pack is perfect for the person that has absolutely everything, or everyone in your wine group put in for incredible wine experience. 

Only 10 available.

Marq Tasting Notes

Marq wines are beautifully presented, with very tasteful labeling, the kind that looks quite swish brought to a dinner party. Keep an eye out for the sleek and stylish bottles. As Dave and Mark have discussed, all of the wines we tried are very unusual in style for Margaret River. While they are not standard, Western Australian varietals, Mark has put a Western Australian stamp on them, making it a really interesting bunch to taste!

Fiano 2011

A very good Western Australian interpretation of this beautiful, Italian varietal. Clean and crisp with orange and lemon flavours. There is a wonderfully European, steely minerality with this wine too, with a very good and very long finish also. Ideal as an aperitif to wake up the taste buds, it would also have the acidity to cut through and pair well with a curry.

Wild Ferment Chardonnay 2010

I am a big fan of these wild yeast Chardonnays generally, but found this one to be quite different to what I was anticipating. The expected juicy, tropical fruits are replaced with dried apricot, more reminiscent of a Viognier. There was some of that baked bread and biscuit that is synonymous with a wild yeast wine. This one would pair well with a cheese soufflé or (for the less adventurous) a quiche.

Gamay 2010

A brave wine maker indeed to attempt this delicate, cool climate varietal in Margaret River. I believe we can say mission accomplished with this one. Different to the Southern Burgundian classic in that it is a fuller and more savoury style, it is still light enough to quaff as an afternoon tipple, and still abounds with lip smacking cherry flavours. We tasted it at room temperature, but, like its French master, I believe you could lightly chill this wine too.

Malbec 2009

This is a hedonistic brute of a Malbec about as subtle as a head-on with Aaron Sandilands! Big, stewed fruit flavours, and a very big, warm mouth feel. At 15% this wine will certainly shake up any party and it will pair well with a cheeseboard (not the actual board, the cheese on it). Very different to the hailed Argentinian equivalent. Ben.
