Winemaking notes

This is a very special expression of McLaren Vale Shiraz.  The average vine age is approximately 50 years with some as old as 75 and 103 years.  The wine was cold soaked for two days then seeded with lallamand yeast.  Fermentation was open for 15 days and plunged 1-2 times daily.  It was racked, settled and blended in September 2015 and then in a combination of oak until bottling in July 2017.

Colour

Deep brick red with a vibrant purple hue.

Nose

Aromas of spice and earthiness with rich dark plum fruit.

Palate

The palate is luscious and mouth filling with concentrated attractive dark berry fruit.  The toasty oak characters marry perfectly with the intensity of this powerful wine. The classy tannins are velvety smooth with a long enthralling finish. 

Comments

Allegiance Wines has sourced this premium parcel of Shiraz from the premium Australian wine region of McLaren Vale.  This wine is an excellent example of the outstanding results possible, when an allegiance between growers and winemakers creates their best expression of the varietal and vintage. Cellar potential of another 20+ years.

Dedication

Shoulder to shoulder we stand with pride, love and unity

Journalist Tony Keys is one of Australian wine's strongest and most enthusiastic advocates. He writes The Key Report, an insightful weekly review of the international wine industry.

Tony is a man widely admired for his honesty, integrity and passion: qualities that set him apart from many other wine journalists. He is amusing, annoying, a touch moody, and never afraid to say how it is, however painful that might be for those of us on the receiving end!

In recent times, Tony has been struggling with a serious health condition. Though he had hoped for a lung transplant, this is now unlikely.

Tony's dedication to the Australian wine community is greatly appreciated. His insights and commentary brighten our lives. And we really hope he enjoys this wine.

Reviews

97 points (5 Stars) – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

delectable offering, the magnificent bouquet shows blackberry, mixed berry compote, dark chocolate, black olive and cedar characters. The palate is concentrated and plush, and exhibits stunning fruit power and richness, wonderfully framed by fleshy mouthfeel and velvety texture. The wine is irresistibly charming while offering structure and engaging flavours. At its best: 2018 to 2030.
