2018 ACE OF TRUMPS SHIRAZ

This wine is a fine example of McLaren Vale Shiraz. Hand harvested and matured in new and seasoned French oak barriques for 16 months. The wine has a deep ruby colour, intense plum/raspberry aromas and plush velvety tannins that build on the palate to give a very long finish. The stylish French oak adds subtle cedar and smoky notes that marry with the fruit flavours to create an appealing complexity in such a young wine. This wine is very enjoyable now but will reward patient cellaring for 10-20 years. ‘Ace of Trumps’ is a tribute to our family’s race horse, which won the Adelaide cup in 1874

$62 per bottle
