Shingleback Shiraz Mclaren Vale 2004

Member Review by Lucha Vino:

Dark purple color with a nose of dark berries, plum, pepper and spices. The palate is lush and full with black fruit tones that finishes with some slight tannins. What I would expect from a McLaren Vale Shiraz. Very nice.

Shingleback Wine:
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.

Fruit bomb, yes! Oak monster-y, yes! Me likes it anyway. Strong strawberry. Easy drinker and hot on the finish.

Bright, fruit forward table wine, blackberry and strawberry aroma enhanced with chocolate and vanilla- let breathe for a half hour and then enjoy the relatively long finish. Good price point.

The wine is a distinctly Australian, with great body and presence from the nose. The hints of the vanilla courtesy of the American Oak send promises of a nice glass. The first sip brought a lovely headiness of the mixture of the currants and dark berries. The finish was lovely with the promised vanilla and a hint of toasted coconut. The tannins are round and lovely in this 6 year old. If you're in Seattle this wine is available for $9.99 at Esquin. It's a steal at that price.

Less rich and opulent than the winery's 2005 release, the 2004 Show Reserve is a medium-bodied Shiraz that marries tart mixed-berry flavors with toast and vanilla shadings. The tannins are supple, the acids crisp, leaving a lingering, mouthwatering finish. Drink now-2012. - J.C. ** SOLD OUT **

Bright and spicy, with flashes of white pepper and carnation around a supple core of currant and blackberry. The fruit is most prominent on the long, expressive finish. The tannins are well-integrated. Drink now through 2016. 1,600 cases made. -HS ** Only 4 in Stock **
