Monterra McLaren Vale Shiraz 2018
Special Price $22.00 Regular Price $30.00
Very bright blue and black fruits here along with plums, on what is a lush and inviting nose bursting with bright fruits. There's richness on the palate balanced by tangy acidity, depth of flavour and spice too. Length is excellent. Strike a balance between poised, pointy and plush beautifully. Drink now with gusto or cellar for 5-8. Made by Mike Farmilo, former Penfolds Grange maker and 2 times Jimmy Watson winner.

Monterra is a brand split across the Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale. Mike Farmilo is the winemaker here, former maker of Penfolds Grange and twice winner of the Jimmy Watson trophy. Brad Rey is also heavily involved (Zonte’s Footstep). The quality of the reds is superb, as the medal cabinet attests. The 15 Merlot is varietal and rich and a gold medal winner. The Nero d’Avola is superb, a deserved trophy winner. We also love the Shiraz, which has picked up a gold medal and was also awarded best wine in class at the Winemaker Challenge in 2017.
