Bimbadgen Signature McDonalds Road Shiraz 2014

I preferred this McDonalds Road Signature Shiraz to the Palmers Lane Signature Shiraz.

Whilst the Palmers Lane is a classic Hunter medium body type, I gravitated to the deeper, juicier fruit and pretty aromatics of this drop.

There's interesting differences in the vineyards too. The McDonalds ripens one to two weeks ahead of the Palmers Lane and is dry grown on clay soil.

Violets, blueberries and purple fruits, sleek plumminess with a delicate dusting of pepper. The fruit is soft and glorious culminating in a finish for days.

Cellar as long as you want.

Excellent.
