Oliverhill ‘Clarendon’ Shiraz 2006
Wow. Grapes are harvested for a single vineyard at 300 meters above McLaren Vale. The cooler and more gentle climate has produced a soft and alluring wine that needs to be tasted to be understood. The generosity of a full-blown Barossa Shiraz with the delicacy of a Victorian cool-climate Shiraz. Your favorite Italian meal or grilled meat will set this wine on a new course of greatness. Soft, dusty tannins support a frame of pure fruit without overpowering the DNA of the wine. Under screwcap and promising 8 – 15 years of further aging potential. Drink now or hold if you are able to resist temptation.
