Vale & Vine McLaren Vale Shiraz
The Vale & Vine philosophy is to source premium fruit from some of McLaren Vale's most acclaimed and sought after vineyards to produce a style that perfectly encapsulates both the essence of the grape and the region. Rich, lingering and delicious - everything you would expect from the Shiraz vines of the 'Vale'. Think aromas and flavours of sweet spice, generous blackberry, cherry, blueberry fruit and the signature McLaren Vale milk chocolate mid-palate.

Sweet, soft, warm tannins whilst on the palate is rich berry fruits, black pepper, nutmeg and cloves. A seriously powerful Shiraz paying homage not only to McLaren Vale, but to the pinnacle of the cricketing world, the Ashes.

Woodstock ‘Deep Sands’ Shiraz
When tasting this Shiraz, generosity of colour and flavour are clear and evident. The vibrant, floral and spicy bouquet brings together both red and black fruits like cherries and plums. The classic McLaren Vale earthiness comes through on the palate, supported by white pepper spice that balances the fruit concentration and the soft yet structured tannins. While young this Shiraz is bright and elegant. With time in the bottle (5—10 years) this wine will soften and develop interesting tertiary characters such as cigar box and leather.
D’Arenberg Stump Jump Shiraz
A beautifully fragrant, restrained yet balanced expression of McLaren Vale Shiraz. The nose is bursting with raspberry, strawberry, mulberry and spice. The palate is juicy and silken. Pure fruit, fresh acid and super supple tannins all in harmony. This wine, from a lighter, spicier year, presents as immediately drinkable and should be enjoyed in the first 3 to 4 years of its life to take advantage of its youthful charm and fresh fruit character.
