SKU: SCPANMERSH21
The last Shiraz block left standing at our Olivers Road home. Named for the original owners of the property, the Merrivale block was planted in 1970 and, unusually, runs East West. The orientation leads to less stress with balanced ripeness achieved at lower baumes. The ironstone rich soils contribute to the structure and allows us to leave the wine unadulterated.

Grape Variety

Shiraz

Region

McLaren Vale

Size

750ml

Wine Style

Red - juicy, smooth, medium-bodied

Palate

The palate starts with dark flavours but has a deft touch with shades of Ribena and cassis plus cassia bark, rhubarb and citrus peel. There’s mystery here and an opening to Shiraz’s real persona without its usual mask of oak and artifice. Mellow and plush with a cool entry; the tannins grip and linger with shape and persistence. The finish is velvety with a savoury umami draw down on the back palate to amp the complexity further. Once again, a McLaren Vale Shiraz without inhibition, set free from the shackles of oak and additions.
