Mouth-filling fruit the talking point. It sways and moves with ease filling every crevice and cavity. Super McLaren Vale Shiraz.
From an interesting year. A cold winter led to the highest average maximum temperature on record, earliest flowering and harvest dates on record. A dry and warm vintage with good yields. Things turned out well in the end.

Here's a big guy. The serious business called upon, that's for sure. Bouncer material. A burly, strong type with broad shoulders. Bloody tasty too.

I dropped into Geddes Wines on a recent trip to McLaren Vale. Go there. Smart wines, and if you get the chance to meet and chat to Tim Geddes, your McLaren Vale experience will be all the better for it. Knowledgeable, passionate, clever wines without the BS or pretentiousness.

Although quite traditional in style, the colours of the Parker Terra Rossa range labels capture the eye well. Good drinking Merlot this too to lure your taste buds.
Merlot played with the straight bat. Nothing to have me cut loose on the dance floor - mind you, that would take a bit anyway.
