2015 DOWIE DOOLE RE­SERVE McLAREN VALE SHI­RAZ

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

RRP $95 / 2045

From Norm Doole’s 41yo Cali Road Vine­yard at Tat­achilla, crushed and destemmed, open­fer­mented, 20 days on skins, ma­tured for 24 months in French hogsheads (50% new). At the apex of the DOWIE DOOLE range of wines, it screams McLaren Vale at the top of its voice, the mix of black cho­co­late and tan­nins com­bin­ing to form a frame­work for the in­tense black­berry fruits of a full-bod­ied shi­raz at the dawn of what will be a very long life. 14.5% alc.

WINE­MAKER Chris Thomas What is your phi­los­o­phy when it comes to this wine?

Our Re­serve Shi­raz is made to show­case McLaren Vale shi­raz with its clas­si­cal, rich, gen­er­ous char­ac­ters en­twined with fine tan­nins and French oak. To pro­tect our phi­los­o­phy, the Re­serve is made in very limited quan­ti­ties, with­out com­pro­mise and only when vin­tage con­di­tions al­low for a supreme shi­raz to be made.
