The wine shows attractive brambly, blackberry-like ripe fruits along with spicy and exotic complexity. The palate is rich and textural with salivating soft tannins. Licorice, chocolate and sarsaparilla flavours linger on the finish. This wine will age extremely well for at least five years but equally can be drunk in its youth.
The wine has a deep and youthful vibrant crimson colour. Wild raspberry, blueberry, cracked pepper and hints of vanilla bean show on the nose. Powerful and balanced ripe tannins give the wine great savoury structure.
The Grey Label Shiraz demonstrates why McLaren Vale is so highly prized for its Shiraz. Barrel fermentation adds complexity to pure, concentrated fruit resulting in a lively, long and balanced wine.
