The Flagship Cabernet for the Davey family of Shingleback. Only made in exceptional vintages, this is the current release, but don’t be surprised if it’s a little hard to find.
Shingleback, D Block, Reserve, Cabernet Sauvignon, McLaren Vale, 2017
Powerful and imposing blackberry and bay leaf with more than ample support from lighter blueberry, chocolate and cigar box. A full and dark bodied release that maintains elegance, never straying into opulence. A minerally straight spine, draped with bountiful fruits and tense tannins. Excellent example of McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon. Bottled under screwcap, this will easily live for 15+ years.
Rating: 18.75/20 (94/100)
