Ministry Of Clouds Shiraz
Includes 20% whole bunch with maturation taking place in old French oak barriques for 11 months.
Totally opaque inky black core with a dark crimson black hue. Nosing delivers a perfumed sniff of liquorice and blackberries infused with violets followed by dark plum, vanillin cedar and some spearmint. Medium to full bodied with abundant richness yet a refined sleekly textured mouthfeel the palate possesses flavours of liquorice, dark chocolate and blackberries intermixed with some earthy dried meat characters and vanillin oak. Slightly dryish on the finish with very fine grained verging on velvet like tannins. Aftertaste of dark chocolate, blackberries, subtle liquorice, earth and vanillin cedar.
Cellar 5-6 years.

Husband & wife team Julian & Bernice are creating quite a stir with this new label and the cracking wines they are producing from premium Australian regions. This is a real ‘wow’ wine and a great example of modern McLaren Vale Shiraz. Intense and focussed with aromas of black floral fruits that leap out of the glass at you and a palate of juicy, bright fruit & spice with soft subtle tannins and a hint of traditional regional chocolate. A wine to enjoy now but also worth keeping a few for what it will deliver in the future. Great value.
