Mak Shiraz Clare Valley Clare Valley Shiraz 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

A bold mouthful of dark berry fruits, bittersweet chocolate and spicy mint. In typical Clare fashion there’s a solid, ripe core of fruit encased in fine tannins and crisp, natural acidity. Nothing blown out or over the top – well structured, able to be cellared for five years and drinking fabulously right now!

Smells better than it tastes. Way too much heat even after being open for a while. had it with burgers and all i could taste was alcohol. Smells like a hedonistic fruit bomb. Tastes like fruity alcohol.

Wine Tasting NotesOpening with a heady blast of perfumed blackcurrant, cherry and spice this wine illuminates the cool finesse of Coonawarra. Polished, cedary oak overtones further lift the already fragrant berry characters. The promise of the aroma is translated onto the palate with dense, ripe wild berry flavors traveling the length of the tongue. Defined and persistent, fine?grained tannins provide additional structure to the long creamy finish which is kept in check by tight acidity.
