2013 Pertaringa Undercover Shiraz 2013 - McLaren Vale

2013 Undercover Shiraz

McLaren Vale

Story: The Undercover Shiraz is named in recognition of McLaren Vale’s history of supplying other regions with our finest red grapes. Known as the mid palate of Australia, McLaren Vale fruit is well regarded for its ability to improve the quality and richness of wines from other regions.

Vintage: The conditions throughout summer in McLaren Vale were ideal for highlighting the sensational quality this wine region is capable of producing. The 2013 vintage was low yielding, resulting in exceptional wines with great intensity.

Nose: The nose exhibits intense floral aromas with notes of spicy plum, ink and black pepper.

Palate: The palate is dense with the plum fruit following through from the nose, powdery tannins and a beautiful, lengthy finish.

Pairing: Try with venison loin dry rubbed with juniper berry and lavender served on braised cabbage with a blueberry and red wine glaze.

Cellaring: Drink now to 2021
