McLaren Vale Shiraz Blend

99 in stock

‘70% shiraz, 25% mourvedre, 5% grenache, fermented and matured separately, matured in used French hogsheads for 24 months, 100 dozen made. Good colour; tells a tale of savoury dark fruits, blackberry and blood plum ex the shiraz, and moody/earthy/briary notes ex the mourvedre, 70% cacao bitter dark chocolate the glue binding the flavours. This is an intriguing wine that may turn out to be something quite special down the track. PS the influence of 5% grenache is minimal. 95 points.’ James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion
