Bec Hardy McLaren Vale Shiraz 2020
Vintage: The start of the 2020 growing season was dry with warmer than average temperatures. Heat and wind during flowering led to lower fruit set and subsequently lower yields at harvest. The temperatures became milder from late January, allowing the vines to recover and helping maintain acidity. Although crops were down considerably this vintage, they quality has been fantastic.
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.
Cellaring: Drink now to 2031

Tasting notes: 2018
"A very fine and ever-reliable McLaren Vale Shiraz, one which reflects the character of the 2020 vintage. Deep garnet in colour, there is some plushness here. Notes of chocolate, blackberries, warm earth, cloves, plums and aniseed. There is some of that ’20 burliness and concentration, which offers a style many love. Good focus here too and a fine line of acidity before a lingering finish with soft tannins. A richly flavoured wine which will continue to offer pleasure for the next five to eight years."
