Classy Australian Shiraz. A vibrant dark ruby red color, with aromas of dark red fruit accented with rich plum, black cherry and hints of dried spice. The palate is generous, with layered flavors of plums and ripe black cherry. Vanilla oak and exotic spice linger on the finish, while the silky tannins give an opulent mouthfeel. Aged in small French Oak barrels, this Shiraz has beautiful mouthfeel and elegance not often found in wines in this price range.
"This is a terrific value, rich and plump, with powerful blackberry, plum and a wee touch of peppermint, all of which echo through the long finish. A serious McLaren Vale Shiraz, built to last. Drink now through 2012."
