2012 The Vincent Shiraz
Ale: 14.66 %
T.A. 6.27 g/1
Vineyards:Bakers Gully Vineyard
Bakers Gully is one of the coolest sub regions of McLaren Vale and this results in a medium bodied fruit driven style of Shiraz slightly lighter than your typical McLaren Vale Shiraz.
This wine has a deep, complex,. brooding nose with aromas of black cherries, blackberries and some regional prune. There are hints of dark cocoa, mace and a woody character similar to mahogany.
In the mouth the wine exhibits Shiraz's typical plush velvety mouthfeel and the tannins on the finish are subtle and long. It is a rich medium bodied wine with good persistence of flavours such as black fruits, rum, raisin and dark chocolate.
The Vincent Shiraz would benefit from 10+ years cellaring. Decant before serving and simple enjoy.
