2014 Five Geese McLaren Vale Shiraz
2012 Sacredtree by Gemtree Classic Vine Shiraz
- A big and bold Shiraz this one! Drawn from a 50 year old vineyard in the cool Blewitt Springs sub-region, this beauty couples that classic meaty plum McLaren Vale Shiraz goodness with power and weight. Delicious McLaren Vale red! 100
Savoury and elegant.
Colour: An attractive dark red.
Nose: Rich red berries and spice, some tasty oak and barrel maturation add complexity.
Palate: Full-flavoured with ripe plums and vanillin oak upfront and a nice savoury, dry tannin finish.
Oak: 18 months in predominately French and American oak hogsheads.
Ageing Potential: Excellent drinkability now and medium-term cellaring.
James Halliday says:“
The Blewitt Springs district is second to none in McLaren Vale, and the maturation in appropriate oak has made good use of this estate-grown wine, its colour an early warning of its quality. True blue Aussie value, over-delivering with panache.
