This Shiraz was sourced from a vineyard at Maslin’s Beach (located very close to the Gulf St. Vincent at the south-western end of McLaren Vale) and the foothills at the top of McMurtrie Road. Shiraz from the Maslin’s vineyard shows spicy aromatics and dark berry fruits. The McMurtire Shiraz has lovely structure giving solid backbone to the wine with intense mid to back palate presence. The small portion of Viognier from our McLaren Flat vineyard was co-fermented with the foothills parcel and contributes fine mid palate textures.
