Winemaker's Notes:

Deep red. Ripe blackberry and strawberry primary aromas are overlaid with blueberry, chocolate and hints of vanilla. Fine-grained American and French oak subtly frame the rich berry mid-palate. A full-bodied wine that is seamlessly integrated from the first taste to the long, lingering finish.
My Notes:

About Shingleback:

Let the Davey brothers introduce you to McLaren Vale, one of Australia's most renowned wine growing areas. During the 1990s, Kym & John Davey brought their combined expertise in winemaking, farming & business, to continue & develop the estate first farmed by their Grandfather in 1957. Their goal was, and remains, to produce affordable, quality wines that express the true character of McLaren Vale.

From it's genesis in 1998, when the first wine (Shingleback Shiraz) was released under the Shingleback label, the Shingleback portfolio has grown into a collection of fine wines that include Shingleback, Red Knot and The Gate. Each made in its distinct style, these wines showcase the best the McLaren Vale region has to offer. They also represent a family committed to producing outstanding wines from the land they love.
