Lot 131 Mclaren Vale Shiraz 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: Warmly fruited in that classic McLaren Vale/Barossa style (I am certain to be crucified for conjoining the two) with notes of spicy blackberry, leather, and meat. Maybe that sounds less than appetizing but that fruit/earth complexity is what makes syrah/shiraz such a fascinating and well-received grape. Cameron Confidential: We have been very finicky about buying Aussie wines as of late given marketing challenges facing the country. All too often, the consumer sees Australia as makers of affordable yet middle of the road plonk. We bought this wine because it is anything but; warmly fruited in that classic McLaren Vale/Barossa style. Lot 131 hails from the same producers of our Lot 39, 40, and 41 and one of the few Aussie selections we just had to have. If you liked the wines listed above this right up your alley.

From McLaren Vale, Australia, this downunder wine is yummy, fresh fruit forward on the palate, spicey yet velvety finish. Pairs well with a variety of wild meats such as venison or kangaroo. But also would do well with a porcini mushroom dish or even chopped ahi tuna, with chopped walnuts, drizzle chinese hot oil on top.
