A sneaky preview of this Stable Tales Shiraz 2018 which is set for release in late 2021.
The vineyard is not organically certified but organic principles are being applied. This saw oak for 20 months.
I tasted this beside the 2017 and this is a much better wine. Rock-solid McLaren Vale Shiraz.
More get up and go and better balanced, it possesses softer spices and a sleeker delivery. Blackberries and blueberries with exotic spices shoulder the load with black pepper kicking in on close. I would happily have a glass. Good stuff.
