Allegiance The Artisan Reserve McLaren Vale Shiraz 2022


Quality McLaren Vale fruit here, which spent a lengthy period in French oak, a proportion new. Deep maroon hue, the nose gives us delightful chocolate and mocha notes. There is plenty of oak here, but the integration is well in process. As well as a touch of vanilla, we have cassis, plums, black fruits and aniseed. There is a sappy note on the palate and quite briary in style. A wine of medium weight with decent length and fine, lacy tannins. Enjoy it now and for the next six to eight years. There is lots to like here.
