The Group The Murder McLaren Vale Shiraz 2020


When last we looked at this wine, it was the 2017 vintage and it performed well. This latest vintage is more than a match for it. A big, bold, gutsy McLaren Vale Shiraz, just the sort of wine which so many consumers love. Sourced from various growers, as is the way of The Group, this is an inky black/purple. Lifted aromatics impress, with plums, cloves, warm earth, leather, black olives, good integration of oak, cassis and blackcurrants. As we move to the palate, more of a choc/cherry note emerges. A soft texture, balanced with crunchy acidity and slightly firm tannins, there is excellent persistence here. Still very youthful, it certainly has a good future for any well cellared bottles. If elegant Pinot is your thing, perhaps look elsewhere, but if richly flavoured reds are for you, this is worth chasing.
