Shiraz 2017, McLaren Vale SA
Our judging panel ranked this higher than Halliday's Shiraz of the Year.
NOSE - Handfuls of ripe cherry, plum and blackberry with wild violet, and famous friends - chocolate and vanilla.
PALATE - This red is deep ruby in colour, medium in body with serene tannins. There's plum, blackberry, dark cherry and ripe chocolate with a beautiful lick of black pepper, cassis and a little vanilla hiding in the background.
NOTES - We feel it sensible that this drop comes with an Augustus Gloop warning, cos you could make a little piggy of yourself. This bottle is a stand alone. Jimmy the cap on a lazy afternoon when you have time to relish and adore a seriously nice wine. Although this red is dry it reminds us of hoeing into moist black forest cake, m m mmm. Truth be told we would happily substitute this guy for dessert any day of the week.
Destined to go overseas as an example of a premium Australian Shiraz, the shipment was cancelled due to the growing trade disputes between China and Australia.. which is why we have come to have it. Retailing for $35 from its vineyard, this may well be the nicest Shiraz we have ever stocked and at our price is phenomenal value.
VEGAN FRIENDLY - Like all of our wines, no animal products were used in the making of this wine.
SPECS - McLaren Vale, 13.5% Alc/Vol, 8 standard drinks, Pres. 220 added, 750ml
