McLaren Vale Shiraz 2019

McLaren Vale

Vintage: The 2019 growing season started with mild weather and below average rainfall. Some late spring rain provided a bit of relief from the dry conditions. A heatwave in January was luckily too early in the ripening cycle to cause any damage to the fruit. This was followed by a very mild and dry finish to the vintage, allowing good hang time and flavour development to the smaller than average crop.

Nose: The nose displays beautifully vibrant aromas of plums, red cherries, chocolate and hints of spice.

Palate: The palate is smooth and fruit-driven with red berries, plums and spice, followed by fine tannins and a long finish.

Pairing: Try this wine with a traditional osso buco.

Cellaring: Drink now to 2029
