This McLaren Vale Shiraz is a Roller Coaster or flavours from ripe berry fruit to earthy herbs and smoky oak to boiled fruit cake and cough mixture. There’s a fascinating spectrum to be experienced with some sharp twists and turns.
Mid to deep red with hues of cherry and mahoganyAromaRipe blackberry and dark cherry fruit are at the fore but there is a background of tar and roses with eucalyptus and dusty spice. It has a combination of sweet fragrance and earthy intensity.PalateThe sweet berry fruit combines with the smoky earthy characters to give a palate full of mocha, resin, licorice and chocolate. The tannins are dry with a supple texture and there is an element of chariness behind the roast coffee beans and spicy oak. The finish is stimulating and dry leaving your palate ready for the next taste experience. It continues to evolve the longer it’s allowed to breath.Food MatchingThis is a Shiraz that can handle some more exotic flavours, try it with Mongolian lamb or dry roasted beef or Char Kway Teow (with spicy Malaysian sausage).Cellaring PotentialThis wine is enjoyable now and will continue to evolve over the next 5 plus years if cellared under the right storage conditionsWine BackgroundPan Terra Reserve wines are hand selected and represent outstanding expressions of variety, vintage and region.
