The color of The Shearer Shiraz is a rich magenta to Spartan red. The nose is of raspberries and boysenberries. There are underlying notes of licorice which become more pronounced the longer the wine is open. Fruit dominates the front of the palate.There's a great relationship between aromatics and flavors that are experienced on the palate. The flavors are a mix of ripe boysenberry, fresh raspberry/strawberry and red fruits.It has typical McLaren Vale mid palate fullness.
