The 2007 Reserve Shiraz is unmistakably McLaren Vale.

This wine represents the best Shiraz in our cellar and was bottled in July 2010 after 29 months in small oak barrels and will benefit from medium to long term cellaring.

Expert Reviews

Deep garnet; exhibiting developed leather and toast notes overlaying sweet black fruits and spice; the palate is warm and unctuous on entry, finding a firm and toasty oak note to finish. Rating 92 - Drink by 2018 - Ben Edwards, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The nose begins with hints of barnyard and creamy notes then opens up with dried herbs, savoury meats and rich developed fruit.

Palate

The palate has a hint of menthol coming through which is quickly overtaken by fleshy fruit and dark chocolate flavour and texture. The once, almost aggressive tannins typical of the 2007 vintage have now integrated and developed beautifully bringing this wine amazing length, weight and mouth feel. The trademark 'Geoff Merrill' acidity finishes this wine on a clean ripe fruit note.
