2012 Scarce Earth Shiraz

Tasting Notes

As one of the most geologically diverse regions in the world, McLaren Vale delivers the Scarce Earth Single Block Shiraz range to help explore the complex influence of geology, soil, climate and topography on wine styles.

All approved wines carry the unique neck label.

The Shiraz grapes used for this limited 64 case release were sourced from a single vineyard on Sand Road, McLaren Vale. Ideal growing conditions resulted in wine with full flavour and long soft tannins.

Aged in seasoned American Oak Hog Heads for 18 months this wine is drinking well now and can be cellared with confidence.
