- ABV 14.5%
- Closure: Cork
The wine name 'Savitar' refers to a mythical dragon-like monster. Fruit is sourced from the Chinese Block vineyard which is located in the Willunga district at the southern end of McLaren Vale. Parcels of Shiraz averaging 20 years of age are grown on rocky, skeletal soils in the northeast part of the vineyard. The wine was matured in 100% new barriques with a medium to light toast for a period of 17 months. 80% of the oak regime was French oak (Allier/Nevers) whilst the balance (20%) was French coopered American oak.
An outstanding Shiraz.
Totally opaque black crimson colour with black crimson hue. Perfumed nose, with mocha top note followed by liquorice, spice and vanilla finishing with a blackberry end note. Mouthfilling palate, great concentration of flavours – strong black pepper and spice palate flavours, with white pepper rolling out on the back palate. Fine grained perfectly balanced tannins. Very long aftertaste of liquorice, blackberry and vanilla.
Cellar 4-5 years (2011-2012)
Named after a mythical monster, the 2005 Shiraz Savitar emerges from rocky, low vigor soils, and was aged for 16 months in primarily new French oak barrels. Dazzling aromas of acacia flowers, blueberries, crushed rocks, graphite, licorice, and espresso roast emerge from this tightly knit but intense, fleshy, rich effort. Its multilayered palate, huge body, sweet tannin, and “monster” finish suggest this brilliant wine will be drinkable between 2008 and 2020. It is a superb example of McLaren Vale Shiraz.
