Winery notes (2015 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 (85%) and French (15%) 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 magenta in colour. The nose is a fragrant compote of bright mulberries, blackberries and milk chocolate with a hint of roasted nuts. Soft, chewy tannins and fresh acidity define the rich blackberry and strawberry mid-palate and focus the long, lingering finish. This estate reserve wine is a classic, vibrant and fruit-forward McLaren Vale Shiraz from the excellent 2016 vintage."


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."
92+/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, December 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Thick fruit and oak. Generous serving size too. Plum, saltbush, vanilla cream and musk. Licorice notes too. Stern tannin, or an attempt at it, but the cuddliness of the fruit-and-oak pours through. A big, smooth, solid red."
