Red Knot Shiraz Mclaren Vale 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Intensives Rubinrot; duftet verschwenderisch nach reifen Brombeeren und schwarzen Kirschen. Am Gaumen für diese Klasse überaus feine, reife und edle Tannine, samtige, von schwarzen Beeren dominierte Frucht, mit feinen Röstaromen unterlegt. Lang anhaltendes, wärmendes Finish. In dieser Kategorie ein Klassewein mit herausragendem Genuss-Preis-Verhältnis.

Jammy on the nose with deep notes of plum, currant and a whack of vanilla oak all topped with plenty of cracked black pepper. Pretty well balanced in the mouth though this lacks a little cohesiveness. The fruit is a bit mild compared to the nose and shows decent freshness and some nice blue streaks along with notes of pepper and herb. The tannins are fairly soft though the acidity seems to be the disjointed culprit. A crowd pleaser, with a fairly long if slightly sticky finish. 85pts

Ripe red fruit. Very sweet and powerful.

Supple, deftly balancing its pure currant flavors against a frame of cherry ... Drink now through 2017. -HS

Frisches, leuchtendes Gelb. Duft von Pfirsich, Birne, Limone und Melone. Ganz dezent auch Noten gerösteter Cashew-Kerne. Am Gaumen sehr harmonisch, mit mittlerem Körper, feiner Säurefrische und saftig-spannender Frucht. Kein buttriger, schwerer Chardonnay, sondern einer des Typs „Spass- und Animationswein“ und auch für den Sommer durch seine betont frische Art bestens geeignet.

Right off the bat you see a deep magenta color in the glass. Fragrant aromas of blackberry and black forest cake with hints of citrus blossom and subtle cashew oak fill the nose. The textured, dark berry fruit palate is alive with black pepper and licorice nuances. Chewy tannins coat the tongue and define the long, lingering finish.

This is McLaren Vale! Vibrant deep red with purple hues complement aromas of blackberry and cassis with nuances of chocolate and vanilla. Luscious blackberry fruit overflows from the mid-palate and is combined with fine tannins and a slate-like minerality. A full-bodied wine with a long, lingering finish, with good integration of its fruit, structural and subtle oak elements.
