Backyard Blue McLaren Vale Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

The ultimate Aussie barbeque wine this with its big, bold dark fruit flavours with the kind of concentration that only McLaren Vale can give. There is also some genuine complexity – bit of earth, bit of spice and some tannins too. Perfect for easy drinking barbeque time in between the odd beer or two.

Winemaker's Notes

This shiraz epitomizes boutique craftsmanship, combining intense natural fruit character with the complexity of the winemaker’s art. The colour is a wonderful vibrant scarlet with deep crimson hues. The bouquet is a whirlwind of mulberry, cedar and peppery spice leading to a robust palate structure that has obvious French oak supporting the concentrated berry fruit and firm tannin grip.

Beyond the initial impact the flavours unfold to reveal layers of herbs, spice, licorice and chocolate. Enjoy with the heartiest of meals, thick, rare rib eye steak and pepper sauce would be an ideal match or hide it in the cellar for a decade.
