Shingleback, Davey Estate, Reserve, Cabernet Sauvignon, McLaren Vale, 2015
Perfumed, if a little restrained nose: Sweet black currant fruit, with a just minty edge: cigar smoke, blueberries, violets and McLaren chocolate. Tight, closed and built for the long haul, there’s all the indicators that this will open (like the 2012 has and the 2014 is becoming), but for now this merely hints with graphite, blackberry and tightly knitted tannins. A value option for the cellar.
