|Region:||Clare Valley & McLaren Vale|
The luscious elegance of the Clare Valley fruit marries superbly with the richer, slightly peppery fruit from McLaren Vale.Download Full Winemaker Note
At release, the wine has a deep crimson red colour to the centre with a vibrant purple hue to the edges.
There are lifted aromas of dark berry and dark cherry fruit along with subtle plums and then spicy overtones of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove aromas.
This is a rich, full-bodied wine with intense flavours of ripe cherry, plum and blackberry fruit, with attractive oak characters of coffee and chocolate. The palate is well balanced with a silky, subtle soft, yet full texture to the mid-palate whilst the tannins are enjoyably chewy and the finish, long and lingering.
Will reward careful cellaring in ideal conditions to 2022, possibly beyond.

This week's top four drops
The annual Jaraman release from Taylors' has established a large following from drinkers who seek high quality wines at an affordable price. The 2012 shiraz is another that will boost that reputation.

World's greatest syrah & shiraz challenge VIII
A full and powerful punter's wine, with some lovely vibrant dark varietal fruit, attractive spiciness and smoky oak.

A good drop
If the purists of the wine drinking community still resent the blending of grapes from different regions, they probably haven't discovered the Taylors Jaraman Shiraz 2012. While it's the 66% Clare Valley fruit that dominates with its elegant violet aroma and understated finesse, the 34% McLaren Vale fruit ups the ante with power and the persuasion of rich plums, blackberries and a hint of dried strawberries. It's a marriage made in heaven as the boldness of the McLaren Vale fruit is harnessed by the austerity of the Clare and the influence of substantial American oak. In its youth, the tannins are still chewy and the result is coffee, spice and cassis on the finish, but with time that will undoubtedly settle and create a subtle but silky smooth finale. You can rely on Taylors to produce a wine of both quality and value.
