A Big, Heavy Hitting McLaren Vale Shiraz

The colour of this wine is holding up very well displaying a midnight black dark red core with a deep dark red hue. Pronounced ripe dark plum, liquorice and dark chocolate aromas arise from the glass with nuances of vanillin oak, mocha, leather and spice also present. Big and bold the opulently textured palate boasts flavours of rich dark plums, liquorice and dark chocolate over spicy vanillin oak, mocha and leather. Very concentrated and rich with a velvet smooth tannin structure. Long spicy aftertaste of ripe dark plums, liquorice, dark chocolate, vanillin oak and leather.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.
Alc. 15.5%

Other Reviews…
The 2006 Shiraz was barrel-fermented and aged for 14 months in 85% new oak, with the barrels 90% American and 10% French. Saturated purple in color, it reveals a splendid bouquet of smoke, pencil lead, bacon, grilled meat, and blueberry. Supple-textured and opulent, this full-bodied Shiraz offers a range of spicy, complex flavors, superb balance, and enough well-concealed tannin to support 5-7 years of additional cellaring. This hedonistic Shiraz should drink well through 2026.
