Food Pairings for Leasingham Shiraz Clare Valley Magnus
This is a very nice blend of Syrah and Cabernet.
A great value wine... it is worth mentioning that in Australia, it sells for around half the price of that in the USA... It has all the hallmarks of a double the price wine... fantastic fruit, smart use of oak and the elegance of Clare Valley Shiraz...
Smooth smooth smooth!
External Reviews for Leasingham Shiraz Clare Valley Magnus
Leasingham Shiraz Magnus 2006 is a deep ruby red, this wine displays lifted aromas of raspberries, mocha and black pepper spice. With vibrant and expressive fruit, the palate shows flavors of red berries and chocolate. It is balanced by juicy acidity, this Shiraz has fleshy sweetness and mouth filling lingering tannins. It is a plump and fruity concentrated wine with plenty of pepper and blackberry cassis fruit. Sublime in origin, offering regional expressions of mint and tar, hints of violet and a sweet, loamy earthiness, magical oak playing a background role to the wine's fruit and body.
Leasingham Shiraz Bin 61 2005 is a lithe, focused and juicy, with blackberry, plum and sweet spice flavors that persist with some refinement into the lively finish, where there's also a touch of malt as this lingers well. It is vivid, deep purple red; powerful, focused and perfectly balanced, with dark berry fruits and fine tannins; a great example of a classic label.
Today, Leasingham’s dry-grown vineyards provide premium fruit of rare concentration. Located 87 miles north of Adelaide between 1,000 and 1,300 feet above sea level, the Clare Valley is South Australia’s northernmost premium viticultural district. This altitude ensures that cool, moist conditions prevail, and combined with the valley’s rich, alluvial soils, the region is one of the best districts for the production of rich, concentrated wines.
