2000 Classic McLaren Wines La Testa Blend

6 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka Review
We love La Testa here at Cracka – lovely, fleshy, pretty, vibrant wines of joy. This Shiraz blend is looking in prime condition, just a little development, but with layers of attractive fruit. Mouth filling and long – it is drinking at peak.

Other Reviews
A deep, fleshy palate makes this oddball blend a highly appealing drink. The bouquet offers dusty toasty oak, ripe berry and mown-hay aromas. The sweet berry theme continues on the palate, where it's medium- to full-bodied, supple and nicely balanced. It has ample tannins and good concentration and would go beautifully with braised lamb shanks.

Good Australian Wine Guide 2002/2003
Youthful red-purple; a direct, fresh, clean, sweet berry bouquet with controlled oak leads into a palate with good concentration and length; sweet juicy varietal character is complexed by subtle oak and soft, fine tannins.
