Tasting Notes

Winery Note:


99 % Shiraz, 1% Viognier In 2015 we were able to produce 290 cases of La Maline.With La Maline we are seeking a pure, finely structured expression of Barossa Shiraz. Key contributers in achieving this are vine age, site altitude, a soil sympathetic to the style and dedicated vineyard husbandry. Vineyard altitudes range from between 360 and 500 m asl, three Vineyards are in Eden Valley and one is in the Barossa Valley.Vine age averages around 75 years. Soils are poor, generally loamy sands sitting over varied parent material bases, all are unirrigated. Vinification was kept relatively simple. All fruit was hand harvested and cooled overnight. Around 30-40% of bunches were retained and fermented as whole clusters, the balance were destemmed. Approximately 1 % pressed Viognier marc was added during fermentation which were are undertaken in small open stainless steel and wooden fermenters with indigenous yeasts. Maceration times were generally between 12-20 days. Elevage on light lees was undertaken in a selection of thick staved 600 L demi muids and barriques. Unfined and bottled without filtration.

Peter Schell and Magali Gely have had a home in the Barossa Valley for over twenty years and hold a strong commitment to and passion for the Barossa. They also have a strong French connection, both physically and philosophically. Magali's family, who up until recently were vignerons with a long lineage in Lunel, near Montpellier, still live in south west France, and over the last ten years Peter has worked six French vintages, in Provence, the Languedoc, Bordeaux and Burgundy. Time spent in the south of France has fuelled their interest in making unique, hand crafted wines with personality, which are generous and honest expressions of the varieties and their provenance.Grapes are sourced from a group of dedicated growers in both the Barossa and Eden Valleys, taking advantage of the great diversity of the soils and meso-climates of the Barossa to create wines with balance, character, depth of flavour and Barossan generosity.
