Shingleback The Gate

Shiraz 2016





Select parcels of fruit from Shiraz vines grown across the Davey Estate vineyard are handcrafted to maximise the potential of each unique batch. Maturation for 15 months in 1 - 5 year old, fine grained American (85%) and French (15%) oak hogsheads softens, enhances and integrates the fruit and structural components of the wine. Individual barrel selection is carried out to create the final blend.

Tasting Note

Vibrant magenta in colour. The nose is a fragrant compote of bright mulberries, blackberries and milk chocolate with a hint of roasted nuts. Soft, chewy tannins and fresh acidity define the rich blackberry and strawberry mid-palate and focus the long, lingering finish. This estate reserve wine is a classic, vibrant and fruit-forward McLaren Vale Shiraz from the excellent 2016 vintage.

If you want heft then you've come to the right place. This lays it on and does so in excellent style. Chocolate and blackberry, ripe plum and toast. Peppercorns too. It's svelte and rugged at once; it's a mouthful. Tannin comes in from a long run and rumbles through the finish. 95 pts.

James Halliday Wine Companion 2019, August 2018

Plush, fleshy dark fruit. Ripe blackberries, dark cherries and blood plums, with subtle liquorice nuances. The palate shows pleasing fruit reserve and savouriness. Attractive dried cherry flavours on the finish. 90/100
