Summary: Inspired by humankind’s evolution through thousands of years, The Theory of Evolution Wines embody the inevitable journey of wine lovers to enjoying the world’s classic great varieties. Winemaker Corey Ryan has crafted each varietally expressive and well-balanced wine from established low yielding vineyards to deliver quality and value that will appeal to all wine drinkers.
Vineyards: Sourced from established vineyards in the Langhorne Creek region in South Australia. The sheltered aspect and consistent temperatures combine to ensure the retention of natural acidity in the elegant fruit harvested.
Winemaking: Picked partially by hand. The fruit is hand-harvested and vineyard sorted before de-stemming and a traditional vinification in small two and three tonne open fermenters with regular hand plunging before partial maturation in three hundred litre American oak barrels for six months.
Vintage 2019: 2019 was a solid vintage in Langhorne Creek especially considering there were several extreme heat days to contend with over the Summer months. Thankfully Langhorne Creek vines hardly suffered due to cool, coastal breezes, and winemakers enjoyed pleasant, even weather heading into vintage. Yields were average across the board and perhaps better than other South Australian regions.
Tasting Note: Trademark Langhorne Creek intensity of flavour with good density and concentration evident. On the nose there’s a profusion of dark fruits complexed by integrated oak and a hint of eucalypt. The palate is fulsome with dark fruit intensity, some mocha oak and a subtle licorice note. It’s bold and flflavoursome with fresh acidity the finish. Pair with a Chargrilled steak, and a rich gravy.
