2013 Tatachilla Foundation Shiraz
This Shiraz personifies the foundations of Tatachilla as one of McLaren Vales oldest wineries by showing off a single vineyard Shiraz that’s an elegant expression of the region’s favourite grape. It’s rich in aromas of plum, dark brooding berries and licorice before a palate of black fruits and spice. It’s a concentrated, complex beast with an amazing smooth finish showing McLaren Vale at its best. It tastes magnificent, but prefers to be served with some mature cheese and good company.
By selecting the best parcels of grapes from low yielding Shiraz vineyards for this wine elegant expression of McLaren Vale Shiraz, Foundation Shiraz epitomises the richness of superbly ripened McLaren Vale fruit.
Lush forest fruits with hints of black pepper, Violets and blackcurrant. A vibrant explosion of forest fruits, cassis and earthy under tones. An elegant, coating tannin structure frames the wine nicely with lingering notes of plum and rich dark chocolate.
