Deep red in color. Very McLaren Vale! Initially full of dark fruits and chocolate/mocha notes, but upon a second look, aromas of grilled meats, vanilla bean and spice become quite prevalent. The palate starts out soft, but the fleshy plums and vanilla spice slowly build to more savory characters delivering a long finish balanced with earthy chewy tannins. Made of 100% Shiraz.
"Very deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Shiraz has aromas of blackberry preserves, crushed blueberries and black pepper with hints of licorice, tar, dark chocolate and truffles. Rich and full-bodied, with plenty of expressive blackberry and licorice flavors, it has a medium level of grainy tannins, medium-high acid and a long finish. Drinking well now, it should keep to 2016+."
The Wine Advocate
"Bright purple. Very fruity, offering lively blackberry and blueberry aromas and flavors and a touch of peppery spice. Supple, easygoing and approachable, with good finishing breadth and cling. 30% of the fruit here was de-classified from the Two Hands McLaren Vale bottlings."
