2022 Rayner Vineyard Shiraz

2022 Rayner Vineyard Shiraz

McLaren Vale, SA

Another great release for this iconic Single Vineyard wine. An excellent densely coloured Shiraz typical of the McLaren Vale region. Lifted dark fruit pastille aromas, plum and vanillin oak in the background. Sweet fruit entry on the palate, dark chocolate and a medium to full-bodied mouth feel with persistent length. A stylish Shiraz and one to age over the long term.

Wine Profile
Winemaker Comments
Previously made between 1993 and 2007, the Shiraz grapes for this wine are not from the 1950 plantings but from a block right next door and planted in the early 1990s. A feature of the vineyard, which is just outside the town of McLaren Vale in South Australia, is the deep sand over clay soils. McLaren Vale had an outstanding season in vintage 2022. The season had average rainfall coupled with warm to hot daytime temperatures, with the majority falling early in the growing season which set a solid crop with a healthy canopy. Favourable ripening during February and early March allowed perfectly ripe tannins. An effortless high quality vintage for the winemakers.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with beef fillet and osso bucco.
Crushed and chilled to tanker in McLaren Vale and then in the Hunter Valley within 36 hours. Fermented in a single static 5 tonne fermenter and pumped over twice per day. Pressed to oak just before the end of fermentation. This wine has been matured in 100% French oak puncheons, 12% being new for 16 months.
Drinking well now in its youth but will develop into a lovely mature dry red over medium to long term cellaring.
