Robert Oatley Finisterre McLaren Vale Shiraz 2018
The fruit here comes from the Hancock, La Colline and Harris vineyards in McLaren Vale, with vines ranging between thirty and fifty years of age. Maturation is in French oak barriques, a mix of new, one-year-old and two-years-old. Deep purple hue, this is plush, like deep rich molten chocolate. Mocha, blackberries, some gentle warm earth and savoury spices. Very well balanced and with good length through to slightly furry tannins and maintains the intensity for the full length of the journey. An excellent McLaren Vale Shiraz from a superb vintage that will easily impress over another decade.
