Serafino, Malpas Vineyard, Shiraz, McLaren Vale, 2015

Lovely colour, deep garnet with purple edges. Plump, plush aromas of black cherry, plum and deep raspberry off-set by minerally gun shot and clove spice. Has an impulse and an energy: the minerally graphite undertone pushes the fruit to the fore with a rush. Only old oak used, pure fruit derived tannins blend harmoniously with bright red berries and McLaren Vale choco/spice regionality. The finish is long and seamless.

RRP: $45
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 17.75/20
