Haselgrove Col Cross Single Vineyard Shiraz 2018
This is from a small block of old vine McLaren Vale Shiraz with just 3,690 bottles made. Winemaking is very similar to the Ambassador, though this wine sees a little less pumping over. Inky black/purple. This is big, ripe, rich and powerful. Notes of chocolate, blackberries, cassis, leather, dried fruits and licorice. A hint of oak, but well integrated and unintrusive. This is a blockbuster with very fine tannins, good balance and impressive length. A wine with a good ten to fifteen years ahead of it. Big and bold.
