Deep dark color. The nose reveals graphite, blackberry & black cherry. The palate has some wonderful silkiness, blackberry, some blueberries, tar, and anise. Silky tannins and an admirable acid level. A medium bodied Shiraz with a slight metallic note on the finish. All in all a very nice Shiraz, full of character and value. Well worth the $20 I paid.

An outstanding offering, the 2002 Shiraz Wade Block 2 (all from McLaren Vale) spent 20 months in French and American wood prior to bottling. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by sweet aromas of peppery blackberries, licorice, and damp earth. Ripe, chewy, elegant, and pure, with a seamless personality, it will drink well for 8-12 years. ** Only 10 in stock **

The 2002 Shiraz Rayner was aged in 80% American and 20% French oak (new and one-year-old). It is a streamlined, tightly-knit, ruby/purple-hued effort displaying notes of blackberries, charcoal, dried herbs, sweet cherries, and hints of figs and vanillin. More opulent in the mouth than its bouquet suggests, it offers attractive, well-defined flavors in a medium to full-bodied, moderately tannic style. It should age nicely for 7-8 years. ** Only 12 in stock **


Winemaker's Notes:

Consistency best sums up this special vineyard and the 2002 wine is the 10th release. The initial feature is the dense black/dark red cherry colour. Maturation was in predominantly American oak (coopered in the Napa Valley) and the distinctive vanillin lift compliments the ripe dark berry and mocha chocolate aromas of McLaren Vale Shiraz. A full bodied mouthfeel. Good viscosity and long flavours of plum, vanillin and charry notes. An excellent finish and although these wines can be consumed in their youth, they do develop into rich, chocolate/earth McLaren Vale mature reds. The palate has strong ‘turkish delight’ characters balanced by subtle oak and grape tannins.
