Undercover Shiraz 2018

McLaren Vale

Story: The Undercover Shiraz is named in recognition of McLaren Vale’s history of supplying other regions with our finest red grapes. Known as the mid palate of Australia, McLaren Vale fruit is well regarded for its ability to improve the quality and richness of wines from other regions.

Vintage: The 2018 growing season started slowly, but warmer weather eventually helped to speed things up. Fruit set throughout the region was good and the low rainfall and warm weather from January to April resulted in great sugar development, while a cooler March offered ideal night temperatures for colour and flavour development.

Nose: The nose offers complex aromas of plums, dark fruits, dried herbs and hints of mint.

Palate: The palate is bright and textural with dark berries, plums and subtle spices, complemented by an elegant and lengthy finish.

Pairing: Try with venison loin dry rubbed with juniper berry and lavender served on braised cabbage with a blueberry and red wine glaze.

Oak maturation: 15% new French and American oak for 18 months.

Cellaring: Drink now to 2026
