2010 Reynella Basket Pressed Shiraz
Deep magenta core with a vivid ruby rim, the nose exhibits intensely vibrant luscious McLaren Vale Shiraz qualities, with an incredible purity of primary fruits of plums, blueberry and dark red berries and chocolate spices interwoven with silky oak aromas.
The palate is defined by the intensity of primary fruits including plush plums, blueberry and Swiss milk chocolate, and lively oak spices with generosity and terrific length. The restrained use of oak adds texture and sweetness while providing an elegant structure of the finest mouth-coating tannins.
2009 leading up to 2010 vintage was a cooler year, with quite mild weather during the veraison to ripening period. The mild autumn meant that the Shiraz retained brighter, red fruit characters. The 2010 Shiraz is an excellent example of the generosity and purity of McLaren Vale Shiraz and exhibits the hallmarks of Reynella house style – poise, purity, structure and length.
