Country: Australia, Clare Valley
Tasting Notes: This wine has a dark, inky red hue. It shows notes of blood plum, cherry and dark berried fruits. Black olive, spice and charry oak also play a supporting role. The palate is restrained in its youth, whilst having the concentration and depth the McRae Wood is famous for. Maraschino cherry and blackberry fruit complements the tar and aniseed savouriness. While showing fantastic drive and power, the soft integrated tannins add a lengthy finish. Made using the ‘Jim Barry’ method and as such can be enjoyed upon release, but would equally benefit from cellaring to allow the wine to show some mature characteristics that come with age.
Varietal: 100% Shiraz
