Angove, 2014 "The Medhyk" Shiraz
Origin: Warboys, Swan, Jones & Cameron vineyards; McLaren Vale; South Australia
*hand-picked, basket pressed
COLOUR: Opaque purple with bright hues.
AROMA: Dark black berry fruit, bitter chocolate and liquorice with a touch of garrigue, bound by French oak
FLAVOUR: Rich and full on the front of the palate with black cherry and berry fruit on the middle palate. The finish is long and well-structured heralding a great wine with substantial aging potential.
Four distinguished sites on the gentle slopes of Mclaren Vale were selected for this wine. Each of these single vineyard parcels is exclusively hand-picked ... All the separate wines were basket pressed into French oak puncheons and then cosseted in our cool cellars for 12 months. Then in early 2015 we selected only the best barrels, blending these together and returning to oak to create the final blend. Thus the complex flavours of each of the vineyards mingle and bind together to produce a wine we believe shows the best of classic McLaren Vale Shiraz.
