This classic Shiraz from McLaren vale is deep cherry-red in colour, exhibiting lovely menthol and spice aromas with ripe, spicy plum fruit, and a hint of chocolate. An inviting palate with rich, ripe, dark fruit flavours and refreshing monty overtones. The fruit characters are plum and raspberry with a fine nutty oak finish. While smooth and velvety on the palate, the wine is rich and full-flavoured. Great for drinking with peppered steak.

'Archetypal yet restrained McLaren Vale style; a melange of black fruits and dark chocolate; silky tannins, good mouthfeel.'
A deep, dark almost opaque black plum red with purple tinges. From one of the most outstanding vintages the 2002 undercover shiraz bouquet is a fruit 'elixir'. Concentrated blackberries, plums, followed by big chocolaty/spicy flavours. Soft, supple mouthfeel with lingering juicy fruit balanced by fine grained oak tannin with a persistent long finish.
