MARGARETE'S SHIRAZ 2018 Langhorne Creek, South Australia
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer JOHN'S BLEND
Extremely deep intense purple colour. Intense, bright, spicy, juicy, intense, ripe, ultra ripe, plummy-black-cherry nose with lots of cedary notes. Dry, full bodied, well structured, rather dense, intense, spicy, ripe, plummy-black cherry purée flavours with lingering, tangy, cedary notes on the vibrant, savoury, somewhat minty finish. This hefty Shiraz should be a perfect match with bbq ribs - it was fermented and matured in new French (75%) and American (25%) oak, spending 29 months in barrel. Has 14.5% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar. The recommended 2015 (***) was released on May 30, 2020 at $39.95. CSPC 927657
