2017 XO Wine Co Mclaren Vale Shiraz

I can’t think of a better way to start this review than by saying this is fresh, fruity and full of life, no doubt about that.  Straight away I knew I was in for something pretty good.  All the signs were there.  Okay, so they were on the front label where it said “Small Batch”, “Single Vineyard” and “McLaren Vale”.

Blackberries the main player, a sweet/sour cherry note, soft blueberry flavours heads on in to level things out a bit, there’s a delicate spice hit, hello dark chocolate and finishing with some fine tannins.  You want to try this yourself now don’t you?

This’ll will cellar for sure but I don’t think that’s necessary.  Tuck in and enjoy it in it’s youth I reckon.
