Complexed by combining the regional flavors of grapes, this wine has incredible power and
purity. The grapes were grown on the Longbottom vineyard in Padthaway, the Birchmore vineyard
in Langhorne Creek and the Mollydooker vineyards here in McLaren Vale.
Barrel fermented and matured in 57% new and 43% one year old American oak.
Pairs with BBQs, steak, ribs, anything with a bit of spice.
"Matured in American oak, 57% new, the 2009 The Boxer Shiraz has a very deep garnet-purple color and intense blackberry, licorice, tar, menthol and cocoa bean aromas. Very full-bodied and with medium-firm fine-grained tannins and generous, warm-berry flesh, it is nicely balanced by crisp acid, finishing long and a little hot. Drink this one now to 2016."
