A wine afficionado and journalist wrote back to me after seeing our homepage and asked in what way arakoon wines taste different from other South Australian wines (as stated in the winemaking philosophy section)? It depends on what you expect. McLaren Vale in particular is now famous for big and fruity wines that are influenced by new american oak. Not all wines are that way of course, but, it could be argued that this is somewhat of a South Australian style. As I wrote in the winemaking section, I think it comes down to our consistent employment of post-ferment maceration and choice of oak. Blending also plays a role. The only way to really find out for yourself is not only to read, but to try it out in practice!
