This cracking Shiraz from Shingleback in McLaren Vale really hits the spot and offers up intense dark fruits layered with chocolate and spice in a nicely robust style. It is from Shingleback's prestigious Davey vineyard in the McLaren Vale. The label has built quite a reputation over the past few years and won numerous trophies – not bad for a $20.00 wine. This is from an excellent vintage (McLaren Vale missed the fires that affected some regions). A very welcome addition to our Shiraz selection and one we know will hit the spot for many.
Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"A single estate wine, from the Davey Estate vineyard, McLaren Vale aged in French and American oak. Deep purple-red. Enticing ripe blackberry and dark chocolate aromas are highlighted with hints of violets and nut-like oak. The full-bodied palate overflows with dark chocolate berries, framed by chewy tannins and a slatey minerality. Seriously good now, careful cellaring for a few years will reward the patient."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, April 2022 (2020 Vintage)
"Bold and rich with dark fruit intensity, dried herb, roast meat and cedar characters, it's concentrated and weighty in the mouth delivering plush texture and loads of fine-grained tannins. Punchy and generously styled, making it instantly appealing. At its best: now to 2030."
