Big Easy Radio - Shiraz/Mataro 'Never Fail False Idols' - 2016
McLaren Vale, South Australia
Inspired by the wines of the Northern Rhone, this is a restrained and elegant version of a McLaren Vale Shiraz that will need time in the cellar or decanting prior to consumption.
Shiraz from the Seaview vineyard and Mataro from Willunga were fermented separately and matured in a combination of new and old French hogsheads for 18 months prior to blending and bottling in September 2017. Bottled unfined but lightly filtered with small amounts of sulphur added.
