Expert Reviews

The 2007 MP Shiraz 9 was aged for 18 months in a mix of new and used French and American oak barriques and hogsheads. Opaque purple-colored, it delivers an excellent nose of cigar box, spice notes, mineral, blueberry, and blackberry. Full-bodied and firm on the palate, it has excellent depth, enough structure to evolve for several years, and good integration of oak, tannin, and acidity. Drink it from 2010 to 2020.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Scarlet red with a purple rim.

Aroma

Rich blueberries, black forest cake and vanilla sugar on nose.

Palate

Intense dark berry fruit, tar, chocolate and coffee on palate with hints of licorice, smoky caramel, raspberry and cherry.

Vintage Condition

A challenging vintage resulting in low yields and exceptional quality. Low winter rains and a small amount of berry splitting (resulting from heavy rain over a 2 day period at a crucial stage of berry development) were major contributing factors producing a reduction in the yield. In addition to this, short periods with unusually high summer temperatures meant that the time between veraison and harvest was shorter than normal. These conditions have collectively provided concentrated flavours, colour and beautifully structured wines.

Winery Profile

R Wines is the label created by Dan Philips for wines sold predominantly but not exclusively for under $20 a bottle produced in-house under the direction of Chris Ringland. The wines are discussed in the order in which they were presented. The last four wines are made from the grapes grown in the Shiraz vineyard of Adrian Hoffman in the Ebenezer district of Barossa Valley. Hoffman was responsible for all the harvesting decisions, and the wines were made by Chris Ringland. They are all still in barrel but will ultimately receive 36-40 months in new French oak.
