Halifax Per Se Block McLaren Vale Shiraz

Here’s proof in a bottle that McLaren Vale need not lean on oak, ripeness or impact to make a profound statement. There’s real restraint here, in a tightly coiled black plum, blackberry and black cherry guise; its old French oak invisible in flavour, lending a lightly-gauged touch of support to finely poised tannins and bright acid profile. In time, a pretty violet fragrance emerges, supporting fruit of perfect ripeness long into the finish.
