2014 Wade Block 2 Vineyard Shiraz

2014 Wade Block 2 Vineyard Shiraz

McLaren Vale, SA

Vibrant youthful colour on release as a two year old wine. Medium density and lovely purple tints. Aromas of dark cherry through to dark chocolate with a slight mint background. The oak, all French, is there as a vanillin note. These follow through to the mid weight palate. Flavours of red spice, ginger and five spice, typical of Christmas cake are also on the palate. Dusty ripe tannins add to the complexity and balance the ripe fruit nicely. Beautiful drink as a youngster but will also age for a long time.

Wine Profile
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 100% French.
Winemaker Comments
The fourteenth 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. A warm to hot vintage was experienced in McLaren Vale with two heat waves, one in January and one in February. The vintage was aided by February rain and cooler temperatures ensured slower ripening.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with beef dishes.
Drink
Drinking well now but will reward with medium to long term cellaring.
