Alcohol/vol 15%
Medium to full-bodied with plenty of youthful blueberry and blackberry aromatics and flavors on offer. This wine has a solid backbone of medium to firm tannins with well integrated, refreshing acidity and finishes with good length. Conspicuously absent is the slight menthol note that often accompanies McLaren Vale valley floor renditions of shiraz - what you'll find in Stuart's old vine shiraz is pure blueberry reduction, atop a luscious platform of mocha and ground coffee beans. THIS is textbook McLaren Vale Shiraz!

Age has not been kind to this South Aussie Shiraz. The fruit is raisiny and tired; there's a prominent note of menthol with more subtle sap and savory spice, and a touch of volatile acidity. A gauzy texture and drying tannins in the mouth makes the fruit get a bit lost, not helped by the astringent finish.
