Shirvington Cabernet Sauvignon Mclaren Vale 2003

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up aromas of cassis liqueur, graphite, toast, smoke, and camphor along with huge body, gorgeous sweetness as well as purity, a multilayered texture, and a colossal finish. I would opt for drinking it over the next 7... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from South Australia in Australia. 2003 Shirvington Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Welcome to Shirvington. Our aim is to grow grapes that produce super-premium, honest wines with full fruit flavour, and to build a strong and thriving Australian brand that is respected as a leader in quality, consistency and value. Our story started in 1996 when we, the Shirvington Family (Lynne, Paul and sons Tony and Mark), purchased 16 hectares of prime land in Willunga, South Australia. After extensive researching and touring of Australia’s major wine regions, this area was chosen for its ability to consistently produce outstanding table wines of great character and quality. Willunga is just south of McLaren Vale on the Fleurieu Peninsula, an area internationally renowned for its red wine, in particular Shiraz. In the winter of 1996, work began on the development of our first vineyard, Redwind. Further purchases in 1997 and 2001 saw the development of two new vineyards, Kurrawyba and Manjalda, in McLaren Flat and McLaren Vale. Working closely with our viticulturist and winemakers, the quality of fruit was such that our first commercial release, the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon, was awarded Wine of the Year at the prestigious McLaren Vale Wine Show. This wine, coupled with our 2001 Shiraz, was the first to be selected by Dan Philips of The Grateful Palate, for distribution in the United States. We will continue to produce wines that are testimony to McLaren Vale’s great reputation. Read less

It is an elegant wine with a nose layered and complex with berry fruits, cedar, chocolate and plum characters. It has an amazing structure that is defined and long, and fruit flavours that are seamless, silky and powerful. It is a fine example of Cabernet Sauvignon from McLaren Vale.

The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up aromas of cassis liqueur graphite toast smoke and camphor along with huge body gorgeous sweetness as well as purity a multilayered texture and a colossal finish. I would opt for drinking it over the next 7-8 years but keep one bottle back until age 12-15. There is so much here it is hard to believe this wine will collapse after 8-10 years of age. Interestingly this 2003 does not appear to be quite as powerful or concentrated as the 2002s or 2001s but thats like splitting hairs. The evolution of this 2003 will be fascinating to follow.
