    Winemaker's Notes:

    This Padthaway/ McLaren Vale blend of Shiraz offers a lovely toasted spice lift mixed with plums and red berry fruit, along with background hints fresh floral and spearmint characters.

    On the plate, juicy McLaren Vale berry and plum fruit are initially present, the wine is dense and hints of leather and complimentary toasted spicy notes. The characters of the Padthaway components shine in the mid pal-ate with lively spearmint and lavender that freshen and add length to the wine. The Dead Letter Office has ripe, yet fine, soft tannins - is round and mouth filling, with fresh acidity.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Although this starts off showing loads of vanilla and bright, boysenberry-like fruit, this is not a simple fruity concoction; there’s some elegance here, and some savory notes of coffee and roasted meat, as well. Drink the rich, full-bodied Shiraz over the next few years.

    Deep, dense purple-crimson; a blend of Padthaway/McLaren Vale shiraz; the components come together well, Padthaway providing fragrance and red berry fruits, McLaren Vale black fruits and its seemingly inevitable bitter chocolate. Drink to 2018
