90 Points - Wine Enthusiast

A blend of Shiraz (70%), Cabernet Franc (20%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%). The Cab Franc comes through loud and clear on the palate and the long finish, where the plum fruit is taut, even a little tart. The fleshy berries and plums on the nose, though, say Shiraz. Well-behaved, and a successful if unusual blend.

Region

McLaren Vale is situated south of The Barossa Valley in South Eastern Australia. The local climates vary enormously according to altitude and exposure to the cooling sea breezes. Red grapes flourish here due to the warm climate and varied soil type and the region is best known for soft and juicy Shiraz, old-vine Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The climate is similar to that of the Mediterranean climate with four clear seasons. We can highly recommend the producers Kay Brothers, Clarendon Hills and Shirvington Estate from whom we have some fantastic wines.
