Trophy for Best Two Year Old Shiraz – McLaren Vale Wine Show 2020
Gold Medal – McLaren Vale Wine Show 2020


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Select parcels of fruit from Shiraz vines grown across the Davey Estate Vineyard are handcrafted to maximise the potential of each unique batch. Maturation for 15 months in 1 – 5 year old, fine grained American (80%) and French (20%) oak hogsheads softens, enhances and integrates the fruit and structural components of the wine. Individual barrel selection is carried out to create the final blend.

Vibrant, deep, purple-red. Dark cherry and blackberry primary aromas, with nuances of vanilla pod, milk chocolate and roasted nut. A fine tannin structure defines and shapes the bright compote of summer berry flavours into the long finish. This estate reserve wine is a classic, vibrant and fruit-forward McLaren Vale Shiraz from the excellent 2018 vintage."


5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, September 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Deeply coloured and deeply delicious, this gorgeous shiraz shows black/blueberry, chocolate, cake spice and toasty oak characters on the nose. It’s powerful yet graceful on the palate, exhibiting excellent concentration and depth, well supported by silky texture and beautifully melded tannins. Plush and immensely appealing. At its best: now to 2033."


94/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, October 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Archetypal in a good way. Straight up the guts and straight through the centre. Blackberry, plum, a mix of milk and dark chocolate, a whisper of mint. Tannin in an integrated way. Complete. Smooth. Satisfying. If you want a ‘big’ traditional red, buy this."

95/100 James Halliday's Wine Companion 2019 (2016 Vintage)
"If you want heft then you’ve come to the right place. This lays it on and does so in excellent style. Chocolate and blackberry, ripe plum and toast. Peppercorns too. It’s svelte and rugged at once; it’s a mouthful. Tannin comes in from a long run and rumbles through the finish."


4 Stars Cuisine Australian Shiraz Tasting, June 2019 (2016 Vintage)
"The shingleback is a blue tongued lizard that lives in semi-arid habitats of South Australia. Our tongues resembled that of a shingleback after tasting this intensely coloured rich and toasty Shiraz. The black pepper notes are softened with vanillin oak and balanced tannins."


5 Stars & Number 1, Cuisine Australian Shiraz Tasting, June 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"The Shingleback label has gone back to back, the Shingleback Davey Estate 2014 having taken out top honours last year. This year’s champion is a big, deep, lively wine, inky dark, with a nose of violets, chocolate and pepper. The fruit is very ripe but not to the detriment of freshness and vitality. Helping in this regard are slaty tannins that give the wine an attractive edge of minerality. Still tightly wound, this elegant yet urgent wine will reward time in the cellar."


IWC 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"Earthy, black fruit, roasted flavours. Very young wine with a tremendous example of pure ripe McLaren Vale fruit, black cherry and black plum and a classic medicinal scent. Recommend decanting."

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
