2012 Kangarilla Road Shiraz Devil's Whiskers Mclaren Vale

"This Shiraz was mostly sourced from two vineyards, one located in the gateway to McLaren Vale together with fruit from Maslin’s Beach (located very close to the Gulf St. Vincent at the south-western end of McLaren Vale). The gateway sourced Shiraz has lovely structure giving solid backbone to the wine with intense mid to back palate presence, the Maslin's portion contributes chalky tannins and minerality. On the nose dark rich berries and slightly smoky notes intermingle with cassis and hints of dark chocolate and warm spice. Immediately on the palate there is dense berry fruit together with satsuma plums and nuances of strawberries. The very structural fruit tannins and the oak tannins from French Barriques carry this fruit to a long finish." Winery Tasting Notes [+]
