Regional Information
Fruit was carefully selected from various regions to balance style & flavour profile of the wine. The climate is hot with high evaporation rates & generally low rainfall making irrigation essential. The climate is also continental resulting in long sunny days & noticeably cooler nights. Modern viticultural & winemaking techniques mean that the climate can be seen as one of the region's strengths.
Current Vintage
2018
Vinification Details
The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed to varying sizes & styles of red fermenters where the fruit was fermented on oak at cooler temperatures of 18 - 22oC for 5 - 7 days. Fermenting at cooler temperatures allows the fruit flavours to be nurtured and enables retention of varietal characteristics. Post fermentation the majority of the wine is matured in stainless steel tanks with a percentage of the wine transferred onto French & American Oak.

Very smooth all rounder

I love all the McGuigan Black Label red wines, but this one is my favourite. It's a touch sweeter than their Shiraz, Malbec & Merlot, which is great when I fancy a glass without a meal. Red is smooth, slightly sweet & goes very well with dark chocolate - maybe slightly too well, because I seem to run out of both very quickly. If you're a true wine buff you may find this a bit too sweet, but if you're like me & simply enjoy a good, heady glass of red, this might be just up your street. If I was to have any negative feedback on this particular wine, it's that the Morrisons at the bottom of my road does not stock the 75cl bottle, only 187ml bottles, so I have to call into the Morrisons 3 miles from home, on my way home from work - please review this Morrisons, as I might run out & that would be devastating ... lol
