Shingleback Local Heroes Shiraz Grenache 2018

Shingleback’s blend of the two “local heroes” of McLaren Vale.

Shingleback, Local Heroes, Shiraz, Grenache, McLaren Vale, 2018

Rich nose with raspberry, blackberry, rose petals, Turkish Delight rosewater/choc, meaty charcuterie notes and an underlying sandy, minerally element. Full bodied while maintaining a tautness in youth. The flavours run through dark chocolate and berry with that intense minerality showing its hand. Tannins are firm, while the finish is lifted.

RRP: $25
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 18/20
