Winemaking Notes

McLaren Vale delivers distinctive and delicious Shiraz characters.  Sourced from premium 20 year old McLaren Vale vines, open fermenters with a cultured yeast with 10 days on skins. A delicious blend of new and old oak for 12 months being 80% American and 20% French. 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 8-10 years.

Colour

Deep, brooding red colour.

Nose

Opulent aromas of rich, ripe red fruits.

Palate

Harmoniously integrated oak intertwines with spicy fine grained silky tannins.  This is a seriously concentrated and balanced Shiraz with exceptional palate length of luscious texture and full flavor.

Reviews

95 points (5 Stars) - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

A magnificent shiraz; the instantly appealing bouquet shows mixed berry compote, Black Doris plum, cedar, cocoa and warm spice characters. The palate is concentrated and fleshy, delivering layers of gorgeous flavours and velvety mouthfeel, finishing impressively long and engaging. Powerfully graceful with moreish flavours. At its best: now to 2027.

 

91 points – Stephen Read, Wine Matrix

Deep dense red in colour with a complex mix of deep black fruits, cedar along with earthy tones and mixed spice. Very complex in the mouth with a mixture of spice at the front, sweet fruit in the middle, drying tannins along with good acid. The finish is long and satisfying. A wine that will cellar well 6+ years to get the best.

 

90 points (4 Stars) - Huon Hooke  

Deep, dark colour, with a muffled bouquet featuring earthy, savoury nuances and rather indistinct fruit character. The wine is the same in the mouth, where it is drying and suffused with powdery tannins. It has satisfying weight and richness, and decent length. Drink 2020 to 2034.
