2015 Reynella Basket Pressed Shiraz
Reynella Shiraz is a classic McLaren Vale style with a rich history of producing wines of outstanding pedigree, making wines of long term aging potential and of critical acclaim. The style is built around the sub-region of McLaren Flat which produces rich textured wines full of dark chocolate, plum & smoked meats. This release of Reynella Shiraz continues that long history.
Bouquet: Classic McLaren Vale Shiraz fruit sweetness & rich aromas of dark chocolate, cedar spice, ripe plum and dark fruit conserve. Subtle complexing notes of black olive & smoked meats play a minor role with expressive fruit aromas dominating the bouquet.
Palate: Densely flavoured with wonderfully rich fruit driven textured palate. Bursting with sweet layered fruits of satsuma plums, mulberry & dark berry fruits with hints of liquorice, black olive & tar. The palate draws to a long finish with persistent flavour ably supported by fine mouth coating tannins.
