Undercover Shiraz 2013

Story   Named in recognition of McLaren Vale's history of supplying other regions with our finest red grapes. Known as the mid palate of Australia, McLaren Vale fruit is well regarded for its ability to improve the quality and richness of wines from other regions.

Vintage  The conditions throughout summer in McLaren Vale were ideal for highlighting the sensational quailty this wine region is capable of producing. The 2013 vintage was low yielding, resulting in exceptional wines with great intensity.

Nose   The nose exhibits intense floral aromas with notes of spicy plum, ink and black pepper.  

Palate   The palate is dense with the plum fruit following through from the nose, powdery tannins and a beautiful, lengthy finish.

Pairing   Venison loin dry rubbed with juniper berry and lavender. Serve on braised cabbage with a blueberry and red wine glaze.

Cellaring   Drink now to 2021
