Allegiance Wines The Tiger McLaren Vale Shiraz 2018
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 cherry and plum fruits.
Palate
The palate marries subtle oak characters with spicy fine grained silky tannins.  The full bodied fruit weight has hints of earthy spice and chocolate. 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.
Awards
Gold Medal – Gilbert & Gaillard International Challenge 2020  Very dark colour with youthful highlights. Intense nose of jammy dark fruits, spice and liquorice notes. Powerful, fruit-forward palate revealing a very fine, well-integrated tannin backbone. Substantial minerality on the finish. Drink with grilled meats.
Reviews
94 points – Rob Geddes MW  Needs a decant to get the party in this bottle started. Black cherry, both fresh and dried fruits wed to dried herbs, oregano and bay leaf. The Mc Laren Vale soft tannins are fully expressed here, wed to the dark cherry fruits on the front palate.
93 points (5 Stars) – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit   Wonderfully fruited and inviting, the wine shows blackberry, sweet plum, toasted spice and vanillin oak characters on the nose, followed by a succulent palate that's velvety and persistent. Beautifully styled and highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2028.
93 points (5 Stars) – Stephen Read, Wine Matrix  The bouquet has lifted aromas of blackcurrant cassis, plums, a hint of spice, vanillin oak and a hint of mint. The palate is full bodied with complex layers of sweet fruit balanced by clean acids and tannin, the mouthfeel is supple and smooth with a long finish. Can be enjoyed now but will benefit from 5+ years in the cellar.
