Region: McLaren Vale, Australia
Wow, this wine... The old-vine fruit is hand-picked, hand-sorted, and hand-plunged in small open fermenters, then basket-pressed and matured in a combination of old and new French oak. Built to age, this wine is a classic McLaren Vale Shiraz, with aromas of dark cherries, red fruits and chocolate. The tannins are fine, soft, and silky. The wine as length poise and purity, and would pair so, SO nicely with a ribeye steak.
