Current Vintage: 2016
Bottle Size: 750ml 
Case Size: 12

TASTING NOTE:

'The inclusion of Merlot 6%, cabernet franc 5% and Shiraz 3% in this cabernet sauvignon all contribute, starting with the outlandishly deep purple hue. While there's certainly ripe fruit with cassis and mulberries lurking, this is savoury through and through with gun smoke, dried gum leaves, Chinese five spice, licorice and tamarind. While oak makes a presence, it isn't brash, the detailed tannins working off a more medium-bodied palate. Excellent value.' 95 points, James Halliday's Wine Companion

WINE REGION:

Located approximately 35 km south of Adelaide in South Australia. Grapes were first planted in 1838 and some vines are more than 100 years old and are still producing. Today there’s more than 88 cellar doors. McLaren Vale is recognized as one of the best Shiraz growing regions in Australia, second only to the Barossa.
