Silent Noise, SGZ, (Shiraz / Grenache / Zinfandel), McLaren Vale, 2017 [Screwcap]

In Stock Now!

An unusual blend; but the Shiraz doesn’t dominate, and the fruit character of both the Grenache and Zinfandel comes through well. This is deliberately made in a breezy, up-front style, juicy and lively. Very food friendly - pork ribs or slow roast belly of pork would be perfect. Now-2020

"40% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 30% Zinfandel. Full of bright youthful fruit with simply gorgeous clarity that is full of charm and flair. Good blending, which gets the richness of Zinfandel and Grenache with the spice of Shiraz. 16.5/20. 2018-21", Richard Hemming MW, jancisrobinson.com, 27th February 2018.

"Charlie O’Brien is hard to miss. The son of Helen and Kevin O’Brien, proprietors of the renowned Kangarilla Road, the young man is well over 1.8m tall with a curl of hair redder than, well, wine. Equally hard to miss is his blend of shiraz, grenache and zinfandel bottled under his own label, Silent Noise. There are crunchy red fruits and a note of soft, savory peach on the nose. Good fleshiness of fruit that’s cut through cleanly with a fresh acid and the tang of blood orange juice. It’s a touch spicy and leaves the taste of cooked rhubarb on the palate", Morgan Dunn, The Australian, May 8th 2018.

Silent Noise is the new project of young Charlie O’Brien, son of famed McLaren Vale winemaker Kevin O’Brien of Kangarilla Road. Kevin is around to help source the fruit and consult on winemaking; but the distinctive name and branding is very much Charlie’s idea, contrasting the noise of winemaking - belts, crusher and presses - with the silence of the bottles waiting to be opened.
