2016 SHOTTESBROOKE ESTATE SERIES MCLAREN VALE SHIRAZ
In the sub-twenty dollar category for red wines, very few wine regions and grape varietals can compete with Australian Shiraz. Value priced Shiraz from a quality producer can deliver a powerful, robust wine that’s jam-packed with intensely complex and hedonistic flavors. We tasted Shottesbrooke’s 2016 Estate Series Shiraz dead-center in a 70 bottle tasting, and it stood out as one of the most varietally sound, and simply stunning wines, regardless of cost.
Shottesbrooke Estate Series Shiraz combines the power of McLaren Vale fruit with the elegance of Adelaide Hills, and the result is a wine that truly has it all. The wine was aged in both French and American oak barrels, which contributes to the intriguing spice characteristics.
2016 was a stellar vintage in McLaren Vale, and one the Wine Spectator described as having, “Generous yields in a standout year.” This wine could be the poster child of great Australian Shiraz, and at under twenty bucks, I guarantee you’ll be delighted by the quality.
