Secret 2015 Gold Medal, 96pt McLaren Vale Shiraz 6 Pack


Price as configured: $120.00

We’ve never offered this wine up as a secret before. We’ve loved it for a long time though, and featured it as a centrepiece of Royal Adelaide Wine Show dozens and a handful of the very best and most top end dozens we have produced.
The least impressive vintages have been very good wines, the best three vintages, incredibly special. This be one of those – incredibly special, complex and complete. Good enough for a glass or two now, but strong enough to survive a 10 year stint in the dungeon and emerge the better for it. On tasting, the spiritual among you may spontaneously sing Kumbaya; metal heads, Fade to Black; classic rockers, Stairway to Heaven and classical fans will be humming the Four Seasons.

Seductive is the word here as allspice, liquorice, black pepper, plums, vanilla, cloves, dark cherries and chocolate abound. Complex as, and with stacks of intense blue and black fruits. There’s plenty of oak too, making this an exceedingly generous drink but there is enough acid to pull it into balance. A ripper and at 15% it is a biggun but it holds the alcohol exceedingly well with an elegance which underpins the fruit weight. One you can happily drink now after decanting, or at any time over the next 15 years. The last few vintages have averaged 95 points from James Halliday and we reckon there’s a chance this one will go higher. Tony Keys has already given it 96.

We’re happy with 96 points and $40 a bottle is on the mark… but forget that, grab it now for just $20/btl in this six pack - take 2 x six packs and we’ll cover the freight for you too!
