2019 Tintara Shiraz
Appearance: Deep purple with crimson edge
Bouquet: Blackcurrants, plum and mulberry with aniseed, hints of raspberry, fennel and milk chocolate.
Palate: Vibrant blackberry, blueberry with fruitcake spice, mocha, and liquorice with soft tannins offering a fine and persistent finish.
Vintage Conditions: Winter rainfalls were slightly below average for McLaren Vale while spring and Summer continued to be dry. Heat spikes in January preceded a warm and dry harvest period however temperatures rarely exceed the low 30’s. Diligent vineyard management and strong vine architecture allowed fruit to achieve desirable sugar and flavour levels with very low disease pressure.
