The 2016 Maeve Shiraz comes from a select parcel of grapes in the Moppa sub region of the Barossa Valley. The red clay soil with scattered ironstone and quartz, combined with the elevated site, produces grapes of great finesse but with excellent fruit weight and definition. This wine has intense berry fruits with a floral lift and a hint of nutty oak. The palate is plush, dense and textured with an amalgam of flavours, vibrant berry fruit, dark chocolate and sweet spices like cinnamon and cloves with toasty mocha oak. The palate is balanced with velvety tannins and finishes with great length of berry fruit. A wine that will cellar for ten to fifteen years.
