This is McLarenVale Shiraz at its best. The concentration of fruit with its silky texture is amazing. The nose is powerful with lifted aromas of intense pepper, blackcurrant and spice. The palate has a firm structure with chocolate, licorice and spice fruit characters. The wine has an incredible depth of fruit, which is layered and complex and will linger in your mouth for minutes.

Winemaker's Notes:

The nearly perfect 2002 Shiraz is the stuff of legends. It is a 1,000 case cuvee that has been completely fermented and aged in 100% new American oak. An inky purple color is accompanied by a remarkable bouquet of white flowers intermixed with melted licorice, blackberries, currants, figs, and espresso roast. Extremely full-bodied, with extraordinary ripeness, opulence, and viscosity, yet very good acidity as well as excellent tannin providing up-lift and definition, this unforgettable wine can be drunk now or cellared for a decade or more.
