Overview

With a philosophy to source top quality fruit from a single, meticulously managed vineyard, McWilliam's Single Vineyard delivers distinctly elegant & balanced wines. The 2014 vintage of the McWilliam's Single Vineyard Shiraz came from the Hillrose vineyard nurtured by the Clark Family, third generation Hilltops farmers, dedicated to producing elegant and spicy medium-bodied Shiraz.

"The Single Vineyard range is an exciting development for McWilliam's winemaking. Being site specific they showcase individual quality and personality, delivering wines of nuance and detail. This enables our viticulture and winemaking teams to push the quality and learn more about the terroir of each vineyard." Andrew Higgins - McWilliam's Premium Winemaker.

Expert Reviews

94 - POINTS James Halliday Wine Companion 2018The deep colour signals a wine with power and complexity; the bouquet is both spicy and savoury, black fruits dripping from every bower of the tree, precision-shaped tannins and quality oak perfectly matched.

94 POINTS Campbell Mattinson The Wine FrontBody of fruit here is excellent. It’s beautifully ripened too. Blueberry and black cherry, almost into asphalt. Warm but flowing and energetic. Tannin tumbles through the back half of the wine, firm but in-step with the flavour. Oak is malty and toasty but not in an overt or thick way; in general this is a well-handled and well-balanced wine. Indeed it’s hard to imagine anyone being disappointed here; quality is right up there.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Vibrant red purple

Aroma

Aromas of dark cherry, violets and blueberry fruits with a seductive toasty oak.

Palate

A medium bodied Shiraz with fleshy blueberry fruits, vanilla oak and chewy sinewy tannins. Has a focused tannin core that balances out the overall slippery mid-palate fruits. Will need up to 3 years in bottle before arriving at its ideal drinking window.
