Deep purple in colour, with an intense aroma of dark fruits and spice, the 2012 McPherson Shiraz expresses true varietal character. With subtly integrated American Oak balanced with ripe plums and blackberries, this wine has excellent structure and length. Secondary aromas of chocolate and spice add intrigue and complexity to the wine with soft tannins creating a supple and smooth wine with impressive length.

Wine Harvest Notes
The highly anticipated 2012 vintage has produced some excellent wines with beautiful balance and length of flavour. The harvest was short and fast with whites and reds ripening early in the season, and good Autumnal weather to follow. Overall the quality is remarkable, and the resulting wines will live on for many years to come.
Try this wine with a hearty barbequed steak, or a rich, spicy tomato based pasta dish such as
Spaghetti Bolognaise or Lasagne.
