2017 Linchpin Shiraz



2017 was an excellent vintage for McLaren Vale. A long cool growing season allowed excellent fruit ripening in the vineyard. The long ripening period lead to Shiraz with great intensity, flavour and ripe tannin.

This Linchpin Shiraz has bright red berry fruit, with dark blackberry fruit and chocolate layered beneath. Aged for 20 months in French oak. This gives the wine fine grain tannin complexity and a long smooth balanced palate. Enjoy now or Cellar for up to 20 years. Dark ruby red with plum purple hues.

Intense aromas of cherry, plums, blackberry, blueberry, with cinnamon spice soy and olives. Palate is full bodied, linear and long. Concentrated flavours of cherry, plums, blackberry and blueberry fruits. Complex mid palate flavours of chocolate, tabacco, olives and savoury notes, with coffee and toasty charry oak supporting. The palate is long anf juicy with a tight finish of ripe but fine tannins.
