- SA - McLaren Vale
- South Australia
McLaren Vale is written into the DNA of this wine, questions of co-fermentation far less important; its is trenchantly masculine, with tannin muscles appearing first up, and flexing them throughout the full-bodied palate. There can be too much of a good thing. Rating 90 - Drink by 2027 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2015)
