McLaren Vale, Australia

Buy Now:

€13.99

Generous and lifted Shiraz with inviting aromas of Christmas pudding, mulberry and black pepper. The smooth, round palate offers notes of chocolate, vanilla and minty dark fruit. Concentrated and long, with sweet, fine-grained tannins. Delicious!

Drink with grilled lamb chops, barbecued chicken or spicy sausage.

Produced by Boutinot Australia, Last Stand Shiraz is made from McLaren Vale fruit from mature vines by winemaker Samantha Bailey. The grapes are fermented in temperature-controlled tanks maintained at 22 - 25ºC to avoid extracting harsh tannins. 20% of the final blend is barrel aged, but the emphasis is very much on bright, primary fruit character.

McLaren Vale, a region 20 miles south of Adelaide, is part of the Fleurieu wine zone. The climate is Mediterranean, but with sea breezes helping to moderate temperatures and keep the grapes fresh. Some very old vines (100+ years) are found here, and the main grapes are Grenache, Shiraz, Cabernet and Mourvedre.
