Aramis Vineyards White Label McLaren Vale Shiraz Cabernet

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

The white label range is the most deliberately approachable of the Aramis wines even though it's still built rich and full, still quintessentially a full flavoured Vale red it's also an affable chap at the same time too, sturdy but still with a friendly smile even.

Winemaker's Notes

This wine is a wonderful example of the potential depth and complexity of the great Australian blend. The bouquet is a heady combination of dark berry and plum fruit intermingled with the earthiness so well known in McLaren Vale. On the palate a refined structure underpins the elegant chocolate and dark berry fruit of the Cabernet and the smooth white pepper spice of the Shiraz. The long finish is rounded off by fine chalky fruit tannins.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Dense purple-red; that regional dark chocolate fires the opening salvo on the bouquet and medium- to full-bodied palate; however, there is a more than ample offer of blackcurrant and blackberry fruit to provide flavour balance, fine tannins and oak filling out the finish.

Toasty/smoky nose and oak tending to dominate the palate but itÕs full of flavour and has great poise.

Matthew Jukes & Tyson Stelzer (2006 Vintage) says
Aramis won a gold medal in TGAR this year and it narrowly missed out on a trophy. This is sodding good wine, with firm tannins, rich black fruits, lots of flavour and texture. Very smartly packaged, too, it’s a serious McLaren Vale red at half the price that it should be. Don’t muck around – buy it and let Aramis know that they’ve done good!

Big, toasty oak impact to the nose and a good weight of sweet oak flavours with a tight acid backbone.
