2017 Epiphany McLaren Vale Shiraz

This Sister's Run Epiphany Shiraz is grown by Tony Parkinson at his famous McLaren Vale vineyard. These tough Shiraz vines produce rich flavours in their berries as they strive to 'populate or perish'. Only 9,218 dozen produced.

Tasting Note

Colour
A medium-to-light purple-red hue with a powdery rim edge.

Nose
Black pepper and star anise aromatics, with whiffs of fresh tarragon and molasses. This aroma morphs into a bouquet that’s driving off into the distance: a savoury and soy and dry vintage port reduction.

Palate
Power and length, with a balance - on the one hand - of fruit ripeness and richness, and - on the other - of fruit spice and acidity. There’s a pleasant herbal edge, making it 11.59am ripe, not 12.01pm overdone...

Summary
There’s no doubting you have a glass of McLaren Vale shiraz here, but it is also a red wine that is welcoming and friendly, more a beverage than a statement of winemaking ego. It makes barbecued foodstuffs - both meats and vegetables - an easy decision.
