|Wine Sub Category||Syrah / Shiraz|
Tasting Note: Medium bodied, with blackberry and ripe dark plum fruits, with a hint of dark chocolate. Sophisticated supple tannins supporting deep fruits and appealing savoury balance. Has enormous appeal now yet will age gracefully for 5 - 10 years.
Vintage Notes: The 2018 vintage was excellent, with good yields and great quality. Below average spring and summer rainfall prevented any excessive vigour and disease problems, meaning clean and well balanced canopies & fruit. After a late start to harvest, McLaren Vale was terrific, delivering well-balanced vines, good crop levels of fantastic colour and flavour. 2018 will be remembered as a great year for both winemakers and grape growers alike, great wines with abundant fruit weight and fantastic colour.
