The McLaren Vale region is located 45 minutes south of Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia. The area is bound to the south by the Sellick's Hill range, extends east to Clarendon, reaches to the north just beyond Reynella and is bordered on the west by the waters of the Gulf St. Vincent. First planted with vines in the 1830's, McLaren Vale is best known today for its internationally acclaimed rich, flavourful Shiraz.
2004 Vintage. Almost rates up there with the Duckhorn. Long finish, great fruit flavor.

External Reviews for Shingleback Cabernet Mclaren Vale
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Shingleback The Davey Estate Cabernet Sauvignon offers intense cassis and warm blackberry notes over nuances of dried herbs, underbrush, pencil shavings and black pepper plus some tree bark. Medium to full-bodied with plenty of expressive cassis and cedar flavors, it has refreshing acidity and a medium-firm level of chewy tannins, finishing long and savory. Drink it now to 2018+.
Broad, ripe and generous with its orange peel- and tea-accented berry and cherry flavors, this finishes with refined tannins. Drink now through 2016.
Smooth in texture and herbal in flavor, with parsley and green bean overtones to the soft currant flavors. Drink now. 7,000 cases made. -HS
