2016 Merchant Shiraz
In the late 1940s, Giovanni Patritti shipped red wine around Australia, sating the thirst of Italian migrant communities. Barrels of Patritti red wine could be found as far away as Coober Pedy and the Queensland cane fields.
This is a classic McLaren Vale Shiraz. Vanilla oak with fresh red and black fruits on the nose. The oak is an integral part of this wine contrasting with the vibrant raspberry and blackcurrant flavours, also providing structure and depth to build a full and even palate.
Drink now or cellar for 8+ years.
