Shingleback Unedited Shiraz 2015

From the F Block of Davey Estate, home to Shingleback, grown on black cracking clay. They’ve released the 2016 but if you’re part of their “The Pick” back vintage cellar club you’ll never know, it may turn up and you’ll be better off for it. Bottled unfiltered.

Shingleback, Unedited, Shiraz, McLaren Vale, 2015

Opaque crimson with purple rim. Gunflint, rose petals, clove, chocolate, earthy bluestone. Silky and seamless palate with a piercing, elegant dark fruit focus and wonderfully low rumbled, fine lacy tannin structure. Plenty of personality while remaining elegant with vitality. An excellent wine.

RRP: $69.95
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 19/20
