A Best Buy
TASTING NOTE: A 60/40% blend, separate lots fermented in open or closed vessels, matured in used barriques for 12 months prior to blending. It's medium-bodied at best, but there's no shortage of flavour, and sufficient extract to provide texture (and length). Attractive wine, with McLaren Vale's stamp on it from the word go. Drink by: 2034. Special Value. Score - 93 (James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au, Aug. 1, 2019) Price $ 19.95
