Tasting Notes
Jon's Block Reserve Shiraz / Blewitt Springs / McLaren Vale, South Australia
Variety

Shiraz 100%

Region

McLaren Vale, 100%.

Colour

Very attractive crimson black colour. Dense

Nose

Very lifted and perfumed, spicy, almost nutty fruit/ oak complexity. A touch of that peaty character which is so typical of the old vines in Block 9.

Palate

Soft, rich, flavoursome palate with lovely spice and pepper complexity lingering. Not sweet, more savoury and elegant in style. A great follow on from the 2010 Reserve Shiraz. This is an impressive example of old vine Blewitt Springs Shiraz.

Oak

24 months in first and second year French oak hogsheads.

Analysis

Alc/Vol: 15%; pH: 3.47; TA: 6.42 SO2 Free 38/Total 97;

Aging Potential

Generous drinking now, it will continue to develop with further time in the cellar.
