All I want is a rack of pork ribs with this Chapel Hill MV Mourvedre in a glass to wash them down. What a beauty!
A McLaren Vale Shiraz from Penny's Hill that is all about getting in deep with dark fruit and dark chocolate. From two sites that were fermented separately before blending, one from Malpas Road planted in 1991 and the other from the Penny's Hill vineyard.
Dr Wes Pearson is all about detail and the one percenters and the new labels for his Juxtaposed wines express the finer details for wine nerds like me - winning! From the Sandy Corner Block of the Wait Vineyard comes this excellent McLaren Vale Shiraz off 55-year-old vines.
Wine and food matching is overrated. Pour a glass of this Home Block Minchella Shiraz and have it with a packet of Freckles by your side. Job done. Oh, and this is a great wine too! It's very impressive.
From the hands of the AWRI guru Dr Wes Pearson comes this Juxtaposed Grenache. A blend of fruit from the famed Smart and Wait vineyards (Clarendon and Blewitt Springs respectively), this 2021 is a muscular rendition.
GAR stands for the Great Australian Red and that red would be the Cabernet Shiraz blend that Aussies can call their own. A blend of Coonawarra Cabernet from Parker's Abbey Vineyard and McLaren Vale Shiraz from Hardy's Upper Tintara Vineyard in Blewitt Springs, this is a generous red wine that calls you back for more.
If you are drinking this Yangarra Estate Ironheart then you are zeroing in on the apex of McLaren Vale Shiraz. It's always a superbly crafted wine and this 2020 release is no different.
