Shingleback D Block Reserve McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Deep crimson, vibrant hue; a fragrant and concentrated bouquet of red and black fruits, mocha, nutmeg and cedar; the palate is medium-bodied and fleshy, with a backbone of fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity; accessible as a young wine, with plenty in the tank for the future; a question mark remains over the heavy bottle and closure.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
The bouquethas essency fruit, with a slight mineral/savoury edge that adds complexity; theflavour is rich and ripe, and extends gracefully along the entire palate

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Good colour; floods the mouth with intense blackcurrant varietal fruit; good texture, structure and length; despite cork, cellar-worthy.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Strong McLaren Vale dark chocolate opens the batting, then cassis and blackcurrant take over, supported by fine tannins and sensitive oak use.
