2015 Wade Block 2 Vineyard Shiraz

2015 Wade Block 2 Vineyard Shiraz

McLaren Vale, SA

2 Trophies / 1 Gold Medal - Royal Queensland Food and Wine Show 2017

Vibrant youthful colour on release as a two year old wine. The aromas represent everything to love about McLaren Vale Shiraz, black fruit and Christmas cake. Perhaps with a thimble of Nan’s brandy over the top. The oak is 100% French and does add some vanillin spice to the mix. Dark chocolate fruit on the palate with dusty ripe tannins adds to the complexity and balances the ripe fruit nicely. Lovely black pastille jube notes on the lingering finish.

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 very dry lead up into the 2015 harvest through spring and over the 2014/2015 summer, resulting in lower crops and earlier ripening. Things really sped up with a heat wave through most of February. Luckily, both of our Shiraz vineyards are on deep sand over clay and held up well, in bottle at 14.5% alcohol.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with beef dishes.
Drink
Drinking well now but will reward with medium to long term cellaring.
