"A blend of Shiraz and Petite Sirah, the very deep purple-black colored 2012 Reserve Red Wine exudes aromas of warm blackberries and crushed black plums with hints of mulberries, black pepper, tree bark and charcoal. Very big and full-bodied, it fills the palate with warm berry preserves flavors and just a touch of pepper that is offset by chewy tannins and up-lifting acidity. It finishes just a little hot.

"Inky purple. Sweet, expansive aromas of cassis, blackberry, bitter chocolate and musky flowers. Lush, round and broad, offering rich black and blue fruit flavors that pick up a spicy character with air. Round, ample and fleshy wine with strong finishing punch, good fruity persistence and supple, slowly building tannins."


" Hammerschlag’s McLaren Vale vineyard consists of ironstone and clay over limestone and benefits from cool maritime breezes each afternoon. Upon securing this location, Hammerschlag got to work in the vineyard selecting 2 clones of Shiraz: 1654, which is very typical of South Australia and Tabhilk, sourced from the oldest winery in Victoria and more reminiscent of the
northern Rhone. In addition to Shiraz, the vineyard is also planted with Petite Sirah, a varietal that is naturally higher in acid, tannin and color, thereby enhancing the wine’s mineral character and providing structure to the blend.

Wine Information: Benjamin Hammerschlag’s family arrived in the States from Germany in the late 1800’s. His great-great grandfather married a young girl by the name of Flegenheimer and joined her family’s business. The Flegenheimers were New York Wine Merchants - in their day a well-known, thriving, pre-Prohibition family enterprise with several locations throughout the greater New York area. From Brooklyn to Yonkers, Hoboken to Newark, Flegenheimer Bros dealt exclusively in quality beverages. The business was established in 1876 and was still flourishing in 1919 when the manufacture, transportation and sale of alcoholic beverages was outlawed in the United States. Three generations later, the youngest Hammerschlag has decided to resurrect this heritage with a reserve red from his high altitude, McLaren Vale property, giving new life to the legacy that began long before he too chose wine as his passion and profession.

Wonderful bouquet full body lots of fruit. Perhaps a tad too sweet but a fine well-constructed wine
