Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia
Established to an auspicious north westerly slope overlooking McLaren Vale, planted to a propitious patch of paringa loams, the felicitious vines at Braydun Hill are stimulated by a rare confluence of environmemtals and clime to yield meagre harvests of simply exceptional Shiraz. Livestock are an inseparable part of the ecosystem, sheep are moved into the vineyard after vintage, where they ruminate until budburst, providing the perfect feed for viticulture. Healthy vines and immaculate fruit, the Shiraz of choice to match wagyu beef and juicy pink lamb.
Deep red, rich purple hues. Redolent nose of spicy berry aromas, moist plum and loganberry over background oak, a touch of spearmint and pepper. Rich, round and fully mature, a full bodied palate brimming with dark berry fruit flavours, blackcurrants, teacakes and dark plum, seasoned by festive spice spearmint notes. Exquisitely balanced n a length of round, velvety tannins before a splendid, lingering finish.
