2016 BEKKERS MCLAREN VALE SYRAH

Halliday - Supplement - - Shiraz & Blends Red Hot & Rated -

RRP $110 / 2056

A 52/48% blend of Claren­don and Seav­iew fruit, 80% destemmed, 20% whole bunches, 5 days cold soak, wild-fer­mented, ma­tured in French pun­cheons, bot­tled Novem­ber ’17, re­leased Aug ’18. Deeply coloured; as usual, a very com­plex shi­raz loaded to the gills with the black­est of black fruits. While tan­nins and new oak are an es­sen­tial part of the bou­quet and palate, they re­main the ser­vants of the fruit. Even in this dis­play of power, there is bal­ance and sym­me­try that will guar­an­tee a min­i­mum 40-year life. 14.5% alc.

WINE­MAKER Em­manuelle and Toby Bekkers What makes this wine so spe­cial for you?

The 2016 Bekkers McLaren Vale Syrah per­fectly rep­re­sents our pur­pose: it show­cases our con­fi­dence in McLaren Vale’s fine-wine po­ten­tial. It’s a wine of soft, silky tex­ture with an accent on spice, fra­grance and aro­mat­ics. It’s all sup­ported by McLaren Vale’s hall­mark gen­eros­ity of flavour.
