2018 is a fine vintage for Shiraz in McLaren Vale, as is obvious from this offering, from one of the region’s most respected makers, Mike Farmilo. The colour is a very dark maroon and the nose is immediately and obviously typical McLaren Vale. Plums, chocolate, dark berries, some oak integration and woodsmoke. There is plushness and good acidity with a slippery texture. This is a full-bodied wine which lingers nicely, though the finish does fade a touch right at the end but lots to like before that. Attractive now and any time over the next five to six years.
