2003 Shirvington Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

SKU #1064795 96 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark Very oaky (French) nose. Wow - what a great texture. Incredibly dense yet ethereal. Plum, moccha, spice - delicious. Very stylish. Great potential. Inner quote mark (12/2005)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The big, concentrated yet velvety-textured, magnificent 2003 Shiraz reveals a seamless integration of tannin, acidity, wood, and alcohol, it boasts aromas of blackberry liqueur intermixed with violets. The fragrant aromatics are followed by an explosively rich, full-bodied, unctuously-textured, compelling Shiraz. Interestingly, this 2003 does not appear to be quite as powerful or concentrated as the 2002s or 2001s, but that’s like splitting hairs. The evolution of this 2003 will be fascinating to follow. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2004)

K&L Notes

Shirvington's notes on their 2003 Shiraz: "The wine was 100% barrel fermented and matured for about 12 months in 80% new American oak and 20% one year old American okk. This wine will give you all the flavours and nuances you are looking for in a McLaren Vale Shiraz. It has a lifted intense nose with chocolate, licorice, cherries and spice characters. The palate is mouth watering with layers of complexity and length. The fruit flavours are powerful, yet velvety and seamless. It is a delight to drink. It is drinking well now and will cellar for many years.
