2013 Wade Block 2 Vineyard Shiraz

2013 Wade Block 2 Vineyard Shiraz

McLaren Vale, SA

Great colour with bright purple tints and deep density. Lifted Christmas cake aromas enhanced with background oak. Medium weight palate with spice and dark fruit flavours. Lovely ripe balanced tannins. Tell-tale pastille black jube fruit characters with a long finish. A big future ahead for this wine.

Vinification
Machine harvested, crushed and chilled to tanker in McLaren Vale. Vinomatic fermentation in the Hunter. Not overly rotated, as soft tannins are required. Oak maturation 20% American and 80% French. The latter mostly new and 1 year old.
Winemaker Comments
The thirteenth bottling of the Wade Block 2 from McLaren Flat. Grown in deep sand, this is an amazing vineyard in that it is nearing 20 years old, but planted with cuttings sourced from a very old local vineyard and grown on own roots. Again, very distinctive and complex, and more than qualifies for the ‘Single Vineyard’ label. With McLaren Vale being true Mediterranean/maritime in climate, no surprises that the region was rain free from December 2012 onwards. The summer was officially recognised as the hottest in Australia since records began. As such, no disease pressure and a very short harvest period with the bulk of fruit picked by early March. Our decision to pick a bit earlier has paid off with this wine having vibrant sweet fruit and balance. This 2013 Wade Block 2 was awarded the trophy for Best McLaren Vale red, not yet commercially available, at the 2014 McLaren Vale Wine Show.
Food Pairing
Beef.
Drink
Drinking well now but will reward with medium to long term cellaring.
