97 Points - James Halliday
Hand-picked, open-fermented with pneumatic plunging, pressed by the century-old basket press, matured in French oak (30% new). Deep but brilliant crimson-purple; takes complexity onto another level with black fruits, dark earthy notes, bitter 70% cacao chocolate, black pepper and cedary oak all held in a wickerwork of ripe, insistent tannins. This will never chuck the towel in.

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.
