2014 MWC (McPherson Wine Co.) Shiraz/Mourvèdre Victoria

SKU #1281940 92 points Wine & Spirits

 Jo Nash makes this wine at the McPherson Wine Company in the Strathbogie Ranges, blending fruit from sources throughout Central Victoria. Five percent mourvedre comes through in a little saddle leather and spice; two percent viognier adds lifted, floral aromas. It’s a pretty red color and has a tight line of flavor, savory with notes of dried red currants and black olives. The tannic grip and fine weight make this a steal at the price.  (6/2016)

Wine Spectator

 Distinctive, with white pepper and fresh-cracked black pepper aromas. Black tea details accent the robust blackberry and plum flavors. Dense tannins. Drink now through 2026. (MW)  (6/2016)

Australia

- While it is true that the greatest strides in Australian winemaking have come in the last 30 years or so, commercial viticulture began as early as the 1820s and has developed uninterrupted ever since. The majority of the great wine regions are in the southeastern area of the continent, including Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, McLaren Vale, and Coonawarra in South Australia; Yarra Yarra Valley and Pyrenees in Victoria; and the Upper and Lower Hunter Valleys in New South Wales. Many of the wines from Southeastern Australia are based on Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon and various blends including Grenache and Mourvedre. In Western Australia, along the Margaret River, great strides are being made with Pinot Noir as well as Bordeaux-styled reds. There are also many world-class releases of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc from the land Down Under, where Riesling also enjoys international acclaim. While many equate Aussie wines with “value,” there are more than a few extremely rare and pricey options, which never fail to earn the highest ratings from wine publications and critics throughout the world.
