Nine Stones (Mclaren Vale) 2017 Shiraz
This wine is bold and assertive. A tribute to the Mclaren Vale style with elegant berry fruit and plenty of persistent oak to carry the wine. Ready to drink now, or cellar for several years. Fruit sourced from the highly acclaimed McLaren Vale region, approximately 22 mi south of Adelaide in South Australia. Notable for being one of Australia’s top maritime regions, McLaren Vale’s thin soils, limited water and warm summers harness Shiraz’s natural vigor and produce intensely flavored fruit.
An intensely aromatic wine with a fragrance of violets, spice, black pepper, and anise aromas together with buttery vanillin oak. Rich & concentrated palate with intense fruit character and oak flavors. Fleshy, supple middle-palate with fine grained tannins and a persistent length.
