Perhaps it's the old age and low yields of our vines, or maybe the special care and attention our fruit receives in the winery. The essence of McLaren Vale lives in our wine-complex fruit and sexy, silky tannins. This is who we are and we're not about to change! Enjoy!
The Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Red Silk Shiraz offers aromas of crushed blackberries and wild blueberries over tar, licorice, bacon fat and loam. The palate is richly fruited with pure black berry flavors supported by a medium to firm level of grainy tannins and lively acid, finishing long. Drink it now to 2016.
International Wine CellarBright purple. Lively Black raspberry and floral aromas show very good upfront appeal. Juicy raspberry and cherry compote flavors pick up a bitter chocolate quality with air, along with a note of candied violet. Finishes gently sweet and long, with a lingering raspberry note. This wine isn't shy about its fruit.
