Crooked Mick McLaren Vale Shiraz 2019 (6 x 750mL) SA

Description:

Climate

Warm, dry and minimal frost across the region during the period of critical growth leading up to harvest has enabled high quality grapes with intense varietal flavours to be grown. The dry winter did result in reduced yields from some vineyards planted on sandy soils but overall yields were as expected. Moderate to high water deficit in the soil of our vineyards between veraison and maturity led us to make rich, concentrated and aromatic red wines.

Viticulture

Trained onto two wire vertical trellises with both wires mechanically pruned back to 2 buds. The canopy is managed through reduced water to restrict its vigour and increase both colour and flavour intensity.

After night harvesting, the Shiraz grapes were crushed into static fermenters. After a brief cold soak to extract colour and flavour, the must inoculated with Rhone Valley style yeast strain. Controlled fermentation occurred over ten days, commencing at 26°C reducing to 24°C. Gentle Pump-overs occurred six times daily to maximise the extraction of colour whilst retaining a soft juicy palate structure. Pump-overs were reduced to twice daily towards the end of fermentation to minimise seed tannin extraction. To avoid any harsh tannins and bitterness only free run and first pressings were used in this blend. After pressing, the wine was settled for three weeks before racking onto new French oak for 6 months.

Crooked Mick is a bushman from Australian folklore who lived in the mythical Speewah. A giant of a man, some say he could shear a massive number of sheep in no time flat, kick crocodiles up to the moon and move mountains. Tall tales or not, Crooked Mick is a legend as are the wines from McLaren Vale.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour

Deep dark cherry-red

Nose

Initially, plum & cherry fruits meshing with spicy notes (predominantly black pepper). Then the wine conjures liquorice and crème brulee notes and forming a very intense and complex bouquet.

Palate

Rich plum and dark berry bouquet harmoniously supported with savoury oak notes like caramel and light roast coffee beans. This full-bodied, powerful Shiraz has a rich and ripe tannin structure that is going to allow it to age very well and add extra value to its elegance with time.

Food that compliments the wine are roasted red meats and vegetables, hearty Italian stews or a BBQ’s steak as you like it.
