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: Early winter in 2014 was wetter than usual and the period from August to early January was very dry with above average temperatures. Following some rain and milder temperatures in January, the 2015 harvest started later that month and was quite condensed, resulting in some fabulous white and red wines.
Nose: The nose offers complex aromas of plums and dark berries with notes of dark chocolate and cocoa beans.
Palate: The palate is medium-bodied with notes of plums, spice, black olives and cloves, followed by a velvety 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 2023
