Tasting Notes  
"The Pippali" Old Vine Shiraz / Blewitt Springs / McLaren Vale, South Australia
Variety

Shiraz 100%

Region

McLaren Vale, 100%.

Colour

Attractive deep red-black colour.

Nose

Rich and complex – spicy fruit and barrel maturation produce a more evolved character.

Palate

Berry flavours and oak tannins give a balanced palate that is lovely drinking now but will continue to develop and evolve in the bottle. Typical of the cooler Blewitt Springs sub-region, this wine is more elegant and subtle on the palate. A long and satisfying mouth feel.

Oak

24 months in first and second year French oak hogsheads.

Analysis
 
Aging Potential

Drinking well now, but has the capacity to develop and soften with further time in the bottle. A very reliable wine from a hot/dry and trying vintage in McLaren Vale.
