This wine is made using six different Shiraz clones which add complexing layers to the finished wine. These clones were first identified in 1964 by Harry Tulluch of the South Australian Department of Agriculture and include SA1654 (The most widely planted Shiraz clone in Australia) which produces wines of intense black purple colour with a distinct black pepper character; SA2626, a firmer tannin structure with flavours of stewed fruit and sour cherries. SA1127 has spectacular dense purple black colour and the aroma is of violets and cherry palate flavours. SA712 is dominated by chocolate and plum flavour whilst BVRC30 offers an earthy, farmyard character to Shiraz.

Rich, plump and seductive McLaren Vale Shiraz

Black as night heart with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Nosing evokes scents of aniseed, liquorice and black cherry followed by some smoky vanillin cedar, dried meat and peppered earth notes. Rich, plump and concentrated, juicy liquorice/aniseed, dark plum and blackberry fruits engulf the full bodied palate. Velvety mouthfeel with notions of scorched earth, spicy vanillin cedar, smoked meats and blackpepper lurking underneath. Amply powered it possesses very polished, seamlessly integrated tannins and finishes long, succulently fruited and seductive.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
