“Shiraz and McLaren Vale”. A famous pairing. Shiraz in McLaren Vale grows well, always ripens, and with correct vineyard management, produces wines of great depth, flavour and structure.
|Winemaker's Notes||While we love and respect the notion of single-vineyard wines, ‘The Rascal’ benefits from being a blend of several sites.|
|Drink||Now through 4 years|
|Bouquet||Slurpy, plush, and lush – but assertive too. Packed with brambly dark fruit; blueberry, mulberry and black berry. Black tea leaves and vanilla. Violets and irises.|
|Palate||Fleshy, sweet and meaty like a slab of steak. Chewy texture, rolling with fruit and oak, grounded with the subtle earthiness of fresh turned soil. Big and round in the middle with a satisfyingly long finish.|
|Food Match||Marbled wagyu, roast beetroot, rocket, and fetta salad.|
