McGuigan launches Single Batch Project range

McGuigan Wines has announced the launch of a new range of wines called the Single Batch Project, made from specific parcels of Chardonnay and Shiraz at vineyards across South Australia.

At McGuigan, when each wine parcel is brought into the winery, it is allocated a unique code, separated from other batches and treated independently to ensure cleanliness and purity of winemaking.

It’s from these parcels that wines under the Single Batch Project are made, tapping into what McGuigan describes as “a boom in the appetite for ‘craft’ products, and with wine being the original craft beverage”.

Each Single Batch Project label features the actual winery batch number and yeast strain used at the McGuigan winery; elements that remain constant throughout each vintage.

The Single Batch Chardonnay 2017 (batch 17CHA#11X1) is described as a wine with “intense fruit and a beautiful natural acidity”, with “citrus and stone fruit aromas”, underpinned by light oak. On the palate are flavours of peach, nectarine and ripe pears.

The second in the series, the Single Batch Shiraz 2017 (batch 17SHl#18X1), is described as “smooth and full-bodied” with notes of “dark fruits and spice, underpinned by notes of charred French oak”. The palate showcases “rich flavours of plum and cherry balanced with soft tannins and oak”.

“The Single Batch Project embodies McGuigan’s commitment to making the wine the hero,” said chief winemaker Neil McGuigan. “This ethos underpins every stage of the winemaking process: from sourcing the grapes and selecting the right parcels, to crafting the wine with care and precision, ensuring the last bottle tastes just as good as the first. This commitment and stellar 2017 vintage conditions have combined to produce wines that we are hugely proud of and feel are excellent examples of these two quintessential Australian varietals.”

McGuigan’s Single Batch Project will be available to buy from independent retailers in Northern Ireland from June, with an RRP of £8.99.
