2013 Johns Blend Margarete's Shiraz

Winemaker's Notes

Colour: Very deep rich and intense red.

Nose: Very powerful intense chocolate and eucalypt mint with complex French oak lift.

Palate: A rich full bodied red showing classic Langhorne Creek character of chocolate/mint/plum. While full-bodied, the palate is balanced with French oak backing with a soft tannin finish.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2013 Vintage) says
From four vineyards in Langhorne Creek, each picked and fermented separately, thereafter followed the same vinification and maturation as John's Blend. You know exactly what you will get from John Glaetzer: luscious fruits interwoven with high quality oak and soft, fluffy tannins, all exuding come hither charm.

James Halliday (2014 Vintage) says
From four vineyards, vinified separately, fermented and matured for 26 months in new French hogsheads. Practice makes perfect, and John Glaetzer has practised unrelentingly for 42 years. The vinification, oak usage and the reliable climate of Langhorne Creek mean that you know what you will get without taking the cork out of the bottle.
