A classic Australian Shiraz with deep purple hues of color and aromas of violates, cocoa, and dark berries entwined with slight smokes of oak. Upon the tongue one experiences the classic dark berries predominated by blackberries giving way to light cocoa and creamy smoke. The tannic acid brings forth a virtual waterfall of spices on the mid to rear palate. A wonderful wine to sip by the camp fire, or with a hearty robust stew of beef and lamb!

Classic Mclaren Vale Shiraz. Big bold and bueatiful.


Winemaker's Notes:

Chris' comments: A classic Australian Shiraz with deep purple hues of color and aromas of violates, cocoa, and dark berries entwined with slight smokes of oak. Upon the tongue one experiences the classic dark berries predominated by blackberries giving way to light cocoa and creamy smoke. The tannic acid brings forth a virtual waterfall of spices on the mid to rear palate. A wonderful wine to sip by the camp fire, or with a hearty robust stew of beef and lamb! Winemaker's Notes: Hand selected from 40 year old vines on our Tatachilla Road vineyard, Uncut Shiraz requires very little intervention. Minimally pruned vines; open fermentation; gentle pressing; and minimal fining and filtration — these are our maxims for producing Uncut Shiraz. Balance in wine cannot be manufactured — it occurs naturally! In this, our 9th vintage as winemakers we have again achieved this balance. The synergy between fruit, oak, acid and tannin in the 2006 Uncut is seamless. Mike's Comment: The 2006 is one of the most restrained wines I have encountered in my 9 years at Gemtree. This is very positive as we can sit back and watch this beast evolve for the next 2 decades. Tasting Notes Colour Purple. Nose Violets, cocoa, mocha, dark chocolate, orange rind, dark berries and savoury oak. Palate The 2006 Uncut is jam packed with goodies, a wonderful package of fruit sweetness, oak, tannin and acid. Red berries and chocolate seem to dominate the front to mid palate with well balanced oak tannin and acid supporting the back palate. Cellaring Now — 2025.
