Over the Top is Pertaringa's flagship Shiraz. Acknowledging the very best site, climate, vines and production techniques, this Shiraz is named 'Over the Top' to proudly declare the aim to make the finest wine they possibly can. The 2001 Over the Top are the best barrels of the old vine Shiraz fruit hand selected from the five decade old vineyard. Made by winemaker Mr Ben Riggs and aged in the best French Oak.

Superb lifted nose, with top notes of vanilla, dark chocolate and spice, followed by a black pepper end note. Powerful, mouthfilling flavour, liquorice, spice, black pepper explode and persist very long onto the aftertaste. Firmish, but dry tannins, followed by a strong mocha and black pepper aftertaste.

Region

McLaren Vale is situated south of The Barossa Valley in South Eastern Australia. The local climates vary enormously according to altitude and exposure to the cooling sea breezes. Red grapes flourish here due to the warm climate and varied soil type and the region is best known for soft and juicy Shiraz, old-vine Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The climate is similar to that of the Mediterranean climate with four clear seasons. We can highly recommend the producers Kay Brothers, Clarendon Hills and Shirvington Estate from whom we have some fantastic wines.
