The Gate

The Gate Shiraz 2016

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.
