Haselgrove Il Padrone Shiraz 2021


The wine spends twenty months in French oak, new and older, before barrel selection provides the final blend. Dark maroon colour here, this is richly flavoured, as one might expect from a top notch Shiraz from McLaren Vale in a great year. Dried herbs, soy, animal skins, cloves and black fruits, supported by plush notes of cassis and mocha. Amazing length, the wine maintains its intensity for the full journey, with sleek tannins. Concentration and balance with good oak integration throughout. This is a cracker and will drink beautifully for at least a decade.
