Ulithorne ‘Immortelle’ McLaren Vale Shiraz 2018
Sourced from the cooler parts of McLaren Vale and then matured in French oak barrels for a year. This wine has everything in place to ensure that it was always going to be a winner. Shiraz from a good vineyard in McLaren Vale, an absolutely cracking vintage and a skilled maker. How could it miss? And it does not.
Vibrant purple in colour, there are notes of dried herbs, dark fruits and warm earth. Chocolate, black cherries and florals. Seriously good concentration here. Good focus, through to a lengthy finish with chewy tannins. The impressive palate lifts with more dark fruits emerging. Good balance. Lots to like here. And a wine with an undoubtedly exciting future.
