2014 Wade Block 2 Vineyard Shiraz
(SPECIAL MUSEUM RELEASE)
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.
