Nicks Secret UC Shiraz returns and the 2022 vintage is quite possibly the best yet. McLaren Vale Shiraz at this price is rarity in itself and when combined with a highly reputable producer and the sheer quality of the wine on offer here, it all adds up to an exceptional buying opportunity that you simply can’t afford to miss.

At this heavily discounted price the value on offer here is off the planet.

Matured in a mix of new and seasoned French oak for a period of 15 months. Magnificent colour displaying a super saturated inky black heart with an equally deep black dark red hue. Ripe blackberry, liquorice and dark plum scents infused with blackpepper jump out of the glass followed by vanillin cedar and smoked meat notes. Rich and youthfully opulent the seductive palate is awash with concentrated black cherry, liquorice and blackberry fruits. Spicy vanillin cedar, peppered earth and smoked meat elements ensue. Sturdy, tightly grained tannins with more than ample power to the long blackpepper infused finish.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Alc. 14.5%

Other Reviews....
An absolutely cracking McLaren Vale Shiraz from a top vintage. What more could you want? Small batch ferment, eight days on skins, and then maturation for 18 months in French oak. The colour is a vibrant and yet near opaque magenta. Ripe flavours just oozing through here. Chocolate, mocha and coffee bean notes. This is rich and full with big, bold flavours. Expect this to provide great pleasure over the next decade and more. If this rich style is your thing, you’ll love this.
