2002 Shirvington Cabernet Sauvignon McLaren Vale South Australia

SKU #1159172 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark There are about 500 cases of the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon, which was aged in both American and French wood (one-half new). The Screaming Eagle of South Australia, it possesses great purity, layers of fruit, enormous volume and intensity, and at the same time, it is strikingly elegant and well-proportioned. This stunningly pure Cabernet tastes like pure creme de cassis intermixed with licorice and oak. It should drink well for 15-16 years, but who will be able to hold onto it that long? (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2003)

K&L Notes

Notes from Shirvington's winemaker: "The wine was 100% barrel fermented and aged in new oak, 20% French and 80% American, for 12 months. This wine exudes the elegance and purity of a McLarenVale Cabernet. The nose is refined with aromas of blackcurrant and plum fruit. In the mouth the fruit is rich, harmonious and integrated. The palate is layered, with a beautiful delicate fine structure and a generous smooth finish. It is drinking well now and will cellar for many years."
