Allegiance Wines The Tiger McLaren Vale Shiraz 2017

Varieties

Shiraz

Region

McLaren Vale, SA

Winemaking Notes

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.

Colour

Deep red colour.

Nose

Aromas of rich, ripe red fruits.

Palate

The palate marries subtle oak characters with spicy fine grained silky tannins.  This is a seriously concentrated and balanced Shiraz with exceptional length of texture and full flavour.

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 8-10 years.

Dedication

Dedicated to the Tigers in our lives.

Occasionally in life you meet a ‘tiger’ – an outstanding person who exceeds all expectations and makes other aspire to their standards.  Gary Sadler was one of those people.  We were always going to be mates – he loved the Wests Tigers, having a punt on the dogs, aggressive fast bowling and believed the longest drive was the most important part of golf.  Gary is no longer with us but he will remain in our memory as shining example of how to get it right – in life, with family, work and friendships.

Reviews

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

A powerfully expressed tempranillo, the bouquet shows impressive rich fruit notes of blackcurrant and dark plum with vanilla, cocoa, hazelnut and mixed spice characters. The palate is concentrated and wonderfully weighted, delivering excellent depth and intensity, superbly framed by velvety tannins. Mouthfilling and delectable. At its best: now to 2027.

 

93 points – Stephen Read, Wine Matrix

Deep purple dense and inviting the nose delivers what you would expect with sweet dark fruits along with spicy oak and hints of sweet vanilla. Overall complex and enjoyable.  The palate has sweet fruit balanced by tight acid and soft tannins with a hint of greenness to them.  Spicy on the front with good length at the back. Enjoy now but will get better with 5+ years in the cellar.
