2015 Primrose Path Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

McLaren Vale makes some of the biggest, baddest Australian Shiraz and this little number is superb value. Lashings of wild blackberry fruit with a little local eucalypt and spice in a lush, fruit forward package. A serious red for a not so serious price.

Winemaker's Notes

The Primrose Path was founded by leading McLaren Vale wine grower Jim Zerella and Nicholas Crampton to create modern and exciting wines that showcase this amazing region.

The Primrose Path refers to a relaxed life of ease and pleasure. The trick is retaining grace whilst avoiding indulgence. Nowhere seems more suited to this life than McLaren Vale, a region devoted to a culture of food and wine against a backdrop of dazzling natural beauty.

Vivid red / purple in colour with an expansive nose of blackberries, blood plums and chocolatey oak. The palate is opulent and inviting with dark plum and blackcurrant fruit flavours matched by dried herbs, cloves and subtle spicy oak. Fine-grained savoury tannins provide definition to the impressively long finish. Unmistakably McLaren Vale, this powerful but nicely balanced wine will gain character and complexity for up to ten years cellaring.

Alc/vol: 14.5%

Expert Reviews

Campbell Mattinson (2015 Vintage) says
Sweet and simple but generously proportioned. A mouthful of dark berried flavour. Smooth. Decent sense of shape. Hard to go wrong.

The Wine Front (2013 Vintage) says
Slippery, nutty, light mocha and liquorice, mixed berries and the like. Slurpy medium-weight wine with plenty of flavour, chocolate and brine and berries, with a sure footed finish with a lick of tannin to close. Very good drinking here.
