Alpha Crucis is the brightest star in the Southern Cross constellation, the most conspicuous star formation visible from the southern hemisphere. Alpha Crucis wines aspire to be the best and brightest wines from the vineyards in McLaren Vale. They reflect a sense of place and the efforts in the vineyard and winery.
Alpha Crucis wines are only released in those years that satisfy uncompromising principles of quality and varietal integrity. Consequently, production of the wines may not occur in years where the climate or vintage conditions challenge these principles.
Sourced primarily from 80yo bushvines in Blewitt Springs. The colour is light and clear, the highly fragrant red berry/bramble bouquet no less inviting. When the palate unfolds its celestial wings, the quality of the shimmering red berries and polished tannins strike home.
