Shut The Gate Single Site Clare Valley Shiraz 2015
$35.00 – $99.00
This is hand-picked fruit from the old Leasingham Centurion vineyard in Clare Valley. Small batch minimum intervention followed by 2 years in French oak. 25% new. I have always liked Clare Shiraz because cool nights maintain natural acidity. Silky smooth tannins and a very flavoursome long palate. Flavour profile is hovering around the plummy, mulberry, boysenberry spectrum and hiding in the background black spice and raspberry. A really enjoyable and impressive wine that is punching way above its weight.
