More about this product;


Get into the ring with this intensely well-rounded, fresh Shiraz. With every round of this rich red its tastes will weigh in with new flavours, from ripe plum, blackberry jam and spice to a touch of vanilla, cinnamon, pepper and caramel. 

Let its flavours marinate by leaving it to rest for a couple of years, or drink it right now if you can't resist. This slurpable wine is great with food. Open up its layers of flavours by matching it with a great steak, lasagne or bowl of spaghetti bolognese.

History
McGuigan Wines was established to celebrate the culmination of 3 generations of wine growing by the McGuigan family. Founder Brian McGuigan adopted the central symbol of the family crest, the lion, to reflect inspiration & the McGuigan's enduring spirit & passion for producing great quality Australian wine. Today Brian's brother, Neil McGuigan, is at the helm of McGuigan Wines & continues the proud family tradition.

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.

Acidic

Not very pleasant. Bitter and acidic. Didn't finish the glass as I didn't want heartburn. Stick to the reserve If it's back in stock!

Average quaffing wine

Pleasant enough to drink on its own but not robust or flavoursome enough to go with food as it has no depth or real flavour. A regular quaffing wine. Buy the Malbec instead.
