I am often afflicted with Devils Whiskers – 2 little marks appear on my top lips when drinking rouge!
Robert Parker is fan of this leading McLaren Vale winery: “.. a knack for turning out high quality efforts…all classic McLaren Vale cuvees with a sense of balance and restraint suggestive of European influence however there is no compromise of the wines flavours or ripeness levels.”
My favourite wine of the lineup at a recent tasting – extraordinary fruit and structure for a $30 wine. Powerful shiraz with concentration, structure and moreish tar (french oak) on finish with fragrance and suppleness on palate (splash of viognier in blend) Definitely a wine of yin and yang. Decanting this wine revealed so many dimensions over the evening. Superb drinking here.
From the winery… “The 2013 McLaren Vale vintage yielded awesome quality … This Shiraz was mostly sourced from two vineyards, one located in the gateway to McLaren Vale together with fruit from Maslin’s Beach (located very close to the Gulf St. Vincent at the south-western end of McLaren Vale). The gateway sourced Shiraz has lovely structure giving solid backbone to the wine with intense mid to back palate presence, the Maslin’s portion contributes chalky tannins and minerality. On the nose dark rich berries and slightly smoky notes intermingle with cassis and hints of dark chocolate and warm spice. Immediately on the palate there is dense berry fruit together with satsuma plums and nuances of strawberries. The very structural fruit tannins and the oak tannins from French Barriques carry this fruit to a long finish. “
