2010 Inkwell Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

SKU #1108871 93 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark Full crimson-purple; a powerful, full-bodied estate-grown wine with a panoply of rich black fruits, bitter chocolate and well-integrated and balanced French oak, finishing with firm but ripe tannins. It's hard to criticise the alcohol, but one cannot help but wonder how great the wine would have been at 14%. Inner quote mark (7/2013)

K&L Notes

After a catastrophic heat wave in 2009 that prevented Inkwell from producing their flagship Shiraz, they are ready with a brand new 2010 bottling that encapsulates the finest vintage in McLaren Vale in ten years. Moderate summer temperatures allowed slow development of the grapes on naturally low-yielding vines, and the harvest took place under ideal conditions. The wine spent 20 months in 30% new French oak before being bottle aged further before release. Raspberry, blackberry, and mocha are highlighted by floral tones and spice with a solid but textured grip.
