The Ponting The Pinnacle Shiraz 2019 is a big, rich and complex shiraz distinctively McLaren Vale with sweet, soft, warm tannins. 2019 was one of the best vintages in McLaren Vale in recent years. This wine honors the most famous of all cricket battles, the Ashes. Ricky Ponting's career against England was uncompromising, with no quarter asked or given of his opponents. From the 35 tests played, he captained 18, scoring eight centuries and 2,476 test runs.
