Cape Barren McLaren Vale Old Vines Shiraz 2019


This wine came from a mix of twenty selected French and American oak hogsheads. Deep maroon in hue, the extra years here have knocked off any edges. Notes of soft chocolate and blackfruits, spices, nutmeg, tobacco leaves and a dusty of cocoa powder. Alluring, seamless and focused, in a linear style. Juicy flavours, fine acidity and well balanced, this is a very fine example of McLaren Vale Shiraz with a decade plus still ahead of it, and room to improve.
