Masterstroke

Shiraz 2020

The wine has a mouth filling lusciousness, densely packed with generous plum and dark cherry fruit flavours along with subtle floral violet characters and a smack of vanilla underlying the opulent oak expression.

More Information
Region McLaren Vale
Colour At release, the wine is a deep purple, red.
Nose The wine displays enticing layers of red plum and black cherry and then mocha coffee and subtle vanilla and spice.
Palate The wine has a mouth filling lusciousness, densely packed with generous plum and dark cherry fruit flavours along with subtle floral violet characters and a smack of vanilla underlying the opulent oak expression.
Vintage Conditions The McLaren Vale region experienced a drier than average growing season in the lead up to vintage 2020 for the third year in a row. The continuation of dry conditions has contributed to generally low yields across the region with winemakers reporting concentrated flavours and good quality.
Oak Maturation The wine was matured in high quality American oak barriques (40% new, balance 2 – 3 year old) for a period of 18 months before being bottled.
Cellaring Notes Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a long term under ideal conditions.
