Signature Series Shiraz 2016

McLaren Vale
  • 75cl bottle

Generous and appealing with Barossa's dark fruits and black chocolate characters, soft, fine powdery tannins and lovely length of flavour.

Vineyards

From selected vineyard parcels around Blewitt Springs - Willunga area of southern McLaren Vale, where the hills run down to the ocean.

Vintage

Reds from the Barossa (Eden Valley and Barossa Valley) enjoyed ideal ripening conditions and generous yields – our focus was on Shiraz which was excellent.

Winemaking

Fermented on skins for 7-12 days in closed fermenters at moderate temperatures ranging from 12-26 °C. A very moderate oak regime, comprising 15% new and the rest older, French oak, for a relatively short period averaging at 6 months.

Enjoy with:

  • Grilled and Roasted Red Meats
  • Grilled and Roasted White Meats
  • Casseroles/Stews
Lovely with a chicken and tarragon pie
