95 Points - Wine Showcase Magazine
  • One of the most brilliant Mystery Wines we offer here on My Wine Guy. The previous vintage was a cult favourite, and this brand-spanking new release follows in its glorious footsteps.

    A blend of Grenache parcels, with Shiraz and Mourvedre thrown in the mix, this well crafted little number is decadent, plush and full of beguiling McLaren Vale tannins. Chocolate, cranberry and raspberry with all spice, vanilla and roasted coffee beans.

    Thus far the 2015 vintage has secured 95 Points from Wine Showcase Magazine, and is destined to follow through with at least 95 or more from Halliday. The previous two vintages scored 95, and this one we feel is a step up in quality. Great wine.

  • TASTING NOTES  

    Deep, dark and brooding, the nose is a true reflection of the three varieties in this blend. Grenache provides darker, savoury, earthy characters. Shiraz typical red berry and plum, and the Mourvèdre spice and black pepper.

    The palate demonstrates all of the hallmarks of this world famous blend. Soft and unctuous with a juicy mouthfeel, the wine is full bodied and packed with flavours of red berry and spice. Fine tannins lead to a dry and long finish perfect for food.


    WINEMAKING NOTES

    Selected from three parcels of Grenache, five parcels of Shiraz and one parcel of Mourvèdre all from different micro climates in McLaren Vale. The first two Grenache parcels comes from an early ripening Aldinga site giving brooding dark fruit with strong structural tannins. The second Grenache is from near Willunga which produces more red fruit and finer tannins. The Shiraz parcels vary from selected sites near Sellicks, Whites Valley, Seaview, McLaren Flat and Blewitt Springs each offering different levels of spice, dark fruit and structural tannins. The Mourvedre was selected from our own vineyard near McLaren Flat and shows spicy lift and structural tannins.

    Crushed to open fermenters with plunging 3 x daily, fermented for 7 days on skins then pressed directly to 10% new French oak and the balance 2-4 yo French oak to complete primary ferment. All parcels of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre were kept separate until final blending after 10 months of maturation.
