2018 Limited Edition McLaren Vale Shiraz

$70.00

Tasting Notes

Smooth and fleshy with concentrated layers of blackberries, raspberries and toasty vanillin oak. The ripe chewy tannins, depth and weight with lasting intensity is delicious now or be rewarded by further cellaring.

Colour

Medium red with a nice depth of colour.

Aroma

Ripe and mature nose reflecting the excellent growing conditions during the season. Anise, vanillin and dark berry fruit.

Palate

Layers of fruit, tannin and oak. Raspberry and blackberry balance toasty oak and spice. A ripe tannin profile across the palate will reward further aging.

Food Match

Roast beef with all the trimmings, roasted eggplant with feta and tomato or a selection of flavoursome cheese.

Winemaker Notes

Fruit selected from premium McLaren Vale vineyards was cold soaked for two days, followed by inoculation with yeast at a low rate to ensure an even fermentation. The juice was cool fermented on skins for eight days then pressed into stainless steel. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was then racked into a mixture of large and small format fine grained barrels for the remainder of maturation.
