Item no. 109146
The warmer 2001 vintage was ideal for McLaren Vale Shiraz, allowing the fruit to easily and steadily attain its full ripeness. The result is a Shiraz deep red in colour, displaying rich, ripe berry notes on the nose. Exhibits ripe blackberry and plum fruit flavours, a result of 18 months maturation in a combination of both American oak (predominantly) and French oak.
Drinking very well now, full in flavour, with good structure and length and will continue to develop those wonderful fruit and oak characters over the next 6-8 years.
Saturated ruby-red. Musky aromas of roasted plum, game, smoke and nutty oak. Fat and sweet; more pliant and generous than this producer's 2001 cabernet, but still possesses sound acidity. Easygoing finish features lush tannins and good length. Aged in three-quarters American and one-quarter French oak.
