McWilliams 1877 represents a no expenses spared approach by one of the nation's most accomplished and enduring winemakers. Grapes are all picked by hand throughout the cool of early morning. Small parcels of the best and boldest Shiraz are crushed and cold soaked in open top fermenters for three days, a third are included as whole bunches. Batches gently warm before inoculation to choice yeasts, hand plunged on skins over the course of a fortnight. Upon completion, batches are gently pressed and racked to a high proportion of new French oak puncheons and hogsheads for ten months maturation on fine lees. Components are assembled in January and treated to a light fining prior to bottling.
Vibrant red purple hues. Bright fruits of dark cherry, pepper and charcuturie, coupled with lifted florals and fresh toasty nutmeg oak. Medium bodied, brightly lit acidity and fine slatey tannins, perfumed fruits and meatiness continue to evolve. An immense, powerful palate in complete balance and harmony, judicious oak matches the boldness of fruit, before a long plush finish.
